Murder-suicide suspected after couple found dead by son

A man allegedly stabbed his wife to death before committing suicide in an incident at their house in Taman Kimsar, Perai here yesterday.

Penang Criminal Investigation Department chief Rahimi Mohd Ra’ais said the police were alerted to the incident by the couple’s 28-year-old son at 3pm after he discovered his parents’ bodies.

“A police team rushed to the location and found the body of a 54-year-old woman in a room with three stab wounds on her neck, chest and stomach.

“Her 65-year-old husband’s body was found hanging from the ceiling in the kitchen,” he said when contacted here last night

He said police did not rule out the possibility of a murder-suicide due to misunderstandings and jealousy.

Rahimi said police also seized a knife allegedly used by the husband, adding they would conduct further investigation into the incident.

He said the bodies were sent to Seberang Jaya Hospital for post-mortem.

Semua pihak khususnya ahli politik digesa berhenti bermain politik, sebaliknya meletakkan fokus dalam usaha membantu rakyat yang sedang menempuh tempoh sukar akibat pandemik Covid-19, kata Timbalan Perdana Menteri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Beliau berkata, semua pihak perlu bersatu dan bersama-sama untuk memerangi pandemik walaupun dalam keadaan jumlah kes Covid-19 yang masih tinggi.

“Janganlah kita berpolitik dalam keadaan sekarang ini kerana rakyat sedang mengalami kesusahan dan memerlukan fokus sepenuhnya bukan sahaja daripada kerajaan tetapi juga parti-parti politik supaya kita dapat membantu rakyat,” katanya dipetik laporan Bernama.

Ismail berkata, ketika ini fokus mestilah membantu rakyat yang sedang dalam kesusahan dan dalam masa yang sama strategi untuk menentang Covid-19 ini perlu juga disokong oleh semua.

Beliau berkata demikian kepada pemberita selepas melawat Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) Kerinchi yang dikenakan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Diperketatkan (PKPD), di Kuala Lumpur.

PPR Kerinchi dikenakan PKPD bermula 3 hingga 16 Julai.
