Cops arrest three workers to facilitate investigation in murder case in Marang

KUALA TERENGGANU: Three construction workers were arrested to facilitate further investigation into the robbery-murder case involving a single mother in Marang on Tuesday.

"Following interrogation, another man, aged 35, from Kampung Pengkalan Berangan, was arrested.

“His urine was also tested positive for drugs," he told reporters here on Wednesday.

On Tuesday the disabled single mother, Tengku Enong Tengku Muda, 68, was found dead in her bathroom in Kampung Baru Sungai Kerak, Marang.
