"The suspect was then handed over to Cheras police.

"It was during interrogation that he confessed to have killed his lover at a condominium in Kelana Jaya here," he told reporters on Friday (June 9).

He said the suspect then led police to the condominium unit where police found six men and one woman.

"In a room, police found his girlfriend, also a foreigner, laying motionless and covered in blood.

"We also recovered a knife near the scene.

"Based on our investigations, the suspect and the victim had entered Malaysia on visitor's pass three months ago," he said, adding investigations revealed that the woman was married and had a child back in her homeland.

He said the suspect was believed to have stabbed the woman at least 18 times and slit her throat.

"Further investigations revealed that the motive was jealousy.

"The suspect believed that his lover was cheating on him and attacked her," he said, adding police have remanded seven men and one woman to assist in the investigation.
