The court fixed July 27 to obtain a medical report.

On June 4, police arrested the accused following a foul stench which led to the discovery of 15 dismembered body parts of an elderly woman in a septic tank and seized a machete, two knives, and other items believed to have been used by the suspect.

The suspect, who is the eldest of three siblings, had received treatment as a mental patient at a private hospital in Penang 20 years ago.

The suspect had not received any follow-up treatment for his condition since then, police said. - Bernama
