Lorry driver charged with murder of wife


KLANG: A lorry driver was charged in the Magistrate's Court here on Friday with the murder of his wife, who was found with slash wounds on her neck and right hand, last week.

S. Suria Raj, 31, nodded in understanding after the charge against him was read out before Magistrate Siti Zubaidah Mahat.

No plea was recorded as murder cases are under the purview of the High Court.

The man is accused of killing A. Kirshashini, 28, in a bedroom in an apartment in Jalan Palma, Bandar Botanik here, between 6.30am and 7am on June 7.

The charge is framed under Section 302 of the Penal Code which provides the death penalty or imprisonment for up to 40 years and 12 strokes of the cane, if not sentenced to death, upon conviction.

Deputy public prosecutor Nurul Jannah Aimi appeared for the prosecution while the accused was not represented.

The court fixed Sept 3 for re-mention of case and submission of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and mental health test reports.

The media previously reported that South Klang OCPD ACP Cha Hoong Fong said that the victim was found lying on the bed with slash wounds on the neck and right hand and the suspect was arrested on the same day. - Bernama
