An argument between two former flames turned ugly when a Malaysian man accidentally killed his ex wife.
Instead of fleeing the scene, the 32-year-old called the police and confessed to the murder. According to local reports, the incident took place at the woman’s house in Taman Ehsan Jaya, Johor Jaya on Wednesday (15th July).
Seri Alam police chief Superintendent Ismail Dollah told reporters that the Chinese individual made the call at approximately 3:20pm to admit about the murder. He has since been arrested and the case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code.
“The suspect had called the police to the house where he later informed investigators that he had murdered his ex-wife,” Ismail was quoted as saying. The 27-year-old deceased woman was transferred to the Sultanah Aminah Hospital for an autopsy.
Word on the street has it that the suspect and the victim are both from Pontian, Johor. The pair are parents of two children and have been divorced for some time now. No word on what the argument was about.
A funeral for the deceased will be held this Sunday (19th July) in Pontian.
