SEREMBAN: A 19-year-old Thai man who works at a restaurant here was charged with murdering another Thai national on Monday (April 29).
The accused, Alsu Nichi, was charged with murdering 24-year-old Abdul Rosah Jaru behind the restaurant in Taman Bukit Emas here at 9.30pm on April 21.
No plea was recorded from the accused.
Nichi allegedly stabbed the victim in the neck with a knife after he was punched in the face, following an argument.
Restaurant patrons then caught the suspect and handed him to the cops, who arrived minutes later.
He was charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder, which carries the death penalty upon conviction.
Magistrate Mahyum Yusof then fixed May 31 for re-mention, pending the post-mortem and chemistry reports.
She also ordered the accused be sent to the Puncak Alam correctional facility, since he is aged below 21.
