ALOR SETAR: The two suspects detained over the death of three sisters are expected to be charged with murder.
Kedah police have found evidence linking them to the siblings' death after the 19-year-old youths were taken to the crime scenes at Kampung Alor Senibong and Kampung Padang Petani, near here, on Friday.
The duo could face charges under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder, state police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Ahmad Ibrahim said.
Sisters Norsyafika Nadia Rusdi, 14, Nur Izzati Husna Rusdi, 12, and Puteri Nurul Akma Rusdi, three, from Kampung Alor Senibong, had gone out together on a motorcycle on Nov 29 last year.
