Unemployed charged with murder and sodomy of nine-month-old baby


PETALING JAYA (Bernama): A jobless man was brought to the Magistrate’s Court here Wednesday (May 12) on charges of murdering and sodomising a nine-month-old baby boy, while his wife was babysitting at an apartment here three weeks ago.

Mohamed Badruldin Mohamed, 36, nodded his head when the murder charge was read out while for the charge on sodomising the baby, he pleaded not guilty.

Both charges were read before Magistrate Muhammad Iskandar Zainol.

No plea was recorded from the accused for murder as the murder case was under the purview of the High Court.

The case grabbed public attention after police in a press conference yesterday said among others the baby was believed to have been murdered and sodomised by the husband of the babysitter in the bedroom of a house here when his wife was sweeping outside the residence.

The man will not be able to celebrate Hari Raya Aidifitri with his family after the court turned down his request for bail as murder is non-bailable offence.

For the first offence, the man was charged with murdering the infant under Section 302 of the Penal Code which carries the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.

For the second offence, he was accused of carrying out intercourse against the order of nature on the baby under Section 377C of the same code which provides for a minimum of 5 years in jail and a maximum of 20 years imprisonment as well as liable to be whipped if found guilty.

He was accused of carrying the offences at a house in Projek Perumahan Rakyat Lembah Subang, here between 8am to 3.30pm on April 27.

Prosecution was conducted by deputy public prosecutor, Alison Chan May Kam while the accused was not represented.

The court set June 15 for next mention and submission of chemical report. - Bernama
