- Man killed lover/colleague in her car at mall’s parking lot at 1.30pm
- Drove to police station with the body at 4pm
- Suspect stabbed woman in a jealous fit, suspecting she was seeing another man
A man in his 30s calmly drove himself to the Damansara police station and gave himself up at 4 pm today, with the body of his 35-year-old girlfriend he is alleged to have murdered in his car.
Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Mohd Zani Che Din said the man is believed to have killed the woman in Kota Damansara earlier today.
The man drove his car into the compound of the Damansara police station, then walked into the building and told on-duty policemen at the counter that he murdered his girlfriend.
He also said that the woman’s body was in the front passenger seat with a wound to the neck.
Police promptly arrested the man who apparently had killed his girlfriend in a fit of jealousy, suspecting that she was seeing another man.
“The suspect told the front desk receptionist that there was a body slumped in the front passenger seat of the vehicle and that he had killed the person in the mall’s parking lot around 1.30pm.
“During preliminary interrogation, the man said he murdered the victim inside the car in a hypermarket in Kota Damansara. He then surrendered himself at the Damansara police station at 4pm. Our inspection found the body in one of the passenger seats.
“Examination of the body revealed a stab wound in her neck. Police believed she was stabbed with a ‘sharp object’ that we found in the car,” Zani told reporters at the Damansara police station.
It was reported that the white car driven by the man belonged to the deceased, and both of them, who had been acquainted for at least two years, were working for the management of a condominium in Kota Damansara.
Zani said the body of the victim would be sent to University Malaya Medical Centre for a post-mortem examination, adding that the case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
Police will apply for a remand order against the man tomorrow.
