Meth-fuelled man kills lover


IPOH: A shop assistant who was said to be high on drugs killed his girlfriend with a broomstick at a shophouse in Taman Song Choon here.

OCPD Asst Comm Yahaya Hassan said the suspect, who tested positive for methamphetamine, had admitted to hitting the 24-year-old victim with a broomstick yesterday.

He said police arrested the suspect, aged 23, along with his mother and two other men.

“We received a distress call from a person who heard a quarrel between a man and a woman at about 4.30am.

“Upon arrival, police found the victim with multiple injuries lying on a bed,” he said in a statement.

ACP Yahaya said a medical officer from Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun, who arrived later, certified the victim had died.

Police seized four mobile phones and a broomstick for their investigation, he said.

He added that the couple had been staying at the shophouse together with their eight-month-old son.

“Initial investigations showed the suspect called his mother following the incident.

“Together with two other persons, they went to the shophouse,” he said, adding that the three individuals were aged between 29 and 65.

“The baby has been handed over to the Social Welfare Department to be looked after,” he added.

ACP Yahaya said all four suspects have been remanded for seven days until July 1 to assist investigations under Section 302 of the Penal Code.

“We are currently investigating the cause of the fight, believed to be due to the influence of drugs,” he added.

A post-mortem will be conducted today.
