Maid allegedly murders kid stepbrothers, then kills herself

SUNGAI BULOH: Two stepbrothers, aged one and five, are believed to have been murdered by their Indonesian maid, who later committed suicide.

Their bodies were found sprawled in a pool of blood at their home here in Taman Sri Putra Tuesday evening.

It is learnt the parents, a coffeeshop operator and his wife, returned home at about 7pm, to find the three of them with their throats slit.

Sungai Buloh OCPD Supt Junaidi Bujang said initial investigations revealed that the maid, in her 30s, who had no documents, slit the throat of the five-year old on the upper level of the double-storey terrace house before the one-year-old boy's throat was slit on the ground floor, near the kitchen.

Supt Junaidi said that the maid then slit her own throat after murdering the two boys.

He added that there were three knives found beside the maid.

S. Sivakumar, 34, a neighbour who lives two houses away, said neither he nor his family members heard any noise from the house at the time of the incident.

"The family usually goes out in the morning to operate their restaurant nearby, leaving the maid and the two boys at home," he said, adding that there were nine people living the house including the three deceased.
