A single mother is believed to have been stabbed to death in front of her two sons at her house in Taman Perpaduan, Ipoh, last night.
Perak Criminal Investigations Department chief Anuar Othman said police received a call about a fight between the 31-year-old victim and a 23-year-old male suspect at about 8.45pm.
“Upon arrival, police found the victim’s body with several stab wounds to the chest, along with the suspect who also had several stab wounds to his chest inside the house,” he said.
Anuar said an initial investigation showed that the woman, who worked at an old folks’ home, had no family relationship with the suspect.
He said police had arrested the suspect on March 15 and charged him in court after the victim lodged several reports of being harassed by him.
