KLANG: A 24-year-old jobless man was charged at the Magistrate’s Court with murdering his 16-year-old girlfriend.

Lee Wei Shen was accused of allegedly committing the offence at a house in Kampung Idaman, Pandamaran near here at about 3.40am on June 26.

Lee was unrepresented, and nodded his head when asked if he understood the charge, which was read to him in Mandarin before Magistrate Amirul Asyraf Abd Rashid.

He was charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code which comes with the mandatory death sentence if found guilty.

Amirul Asyraf set Sept 7 for the post-mortem, forensic, toxicology and chemistry reports to be handed over to the court.

Earlier media reports had said that the victim, who was still in school, was suspected to have been murdered by a boyfriend after an argument.

The scene of the incident was said to be the accused’s home.

South Klang OCPR ACP Cha Hoong Fong was quoted as saying investigations revealed Lee had then carried the victim out of the room, where the incident happened, and brought her to the house compound before alerting his family.

He had added the family then notified the police and an early inspection found the girl had scratches and bruises on her face and neck.
