Suspecting that his wife was having an affair, a man stabbed her to death in a fit of jealousy at their kongsi house in Jalan Teluk Likas, Kota Kinabalu, at about 2 am yesterday.

City police chief ACP Habibi Majinji told a press conference today that the husband, aged 59, stabbed his 61-year-old wife twice in the back.

He said neighbours called up the police on hearing a heated commotion at the house and when police arrived, the man tried to stab himself but was prevented from doing so by policemen.

The woman lay dead in a pool of blood, he said, adding that the man also tried to burn down the house but firemen who had followed the police team managed to douse the flames.
