SIBU: A post-mortem done on the bodies of the two elderly construction workers, who were victims of a murder case last Saturday, showed they had died from injuries inflicted by a sharp object, believed to be a single-edged knife.
In the case, which happened in a near-completed detached house at Jalan Kwong Ann on July 19, the two men, Ngu Soon Hien, 61, and Law Pang Chii, 73, were doing renovation work on the house when their co-worker surnamed Sia, 64, showed up.
A heated arguement erupted between them which resulted in the suspect attacking the duo using a sharp object. Both died on the spot.
The suspect, however, sustained serious head injuries when his motorcycle collided with a lorry at Jalan Tunku Anbdul Rahman, in his attempt to flee the scene.
A post-mortem done by pathologist Dr Norliza Ibrahim on July 22 showed that Ngu had five stab wounds — on his left chest, at the side of his left chest, left abdoment and on the left of his foreleg. He also sustained one graze-wound on his left knee. It was the left chest injury that had caused his death.
Law had three stab wounds — on his left chest, side of his right chest and on the right of his back.
He died due to injuries on his vital organs that included his chest, heart and lung.
Meanwhile, the suspect who was warded at the intensive care unit of Sibu hospital succumbed to his injuries around 2.50pm yesterday.
