SEPANG: Police have concluded their investigations into the murder of Serdang Hospital nursing sister Siti Kharina Mohd Kamarudin, and have referred the case to prosecutors to initiate charges against one of the three suspects in custody.

Selangor police chief Noor Azam Jamaludin said the police are leaving it to the deputy public prosecutor (DPP) to decide when to charge the suspect in court.

“Out of the three, we will charge one as soon as possible. The rest are to be witnesses,” he told reporters when met after officiating the opening of the Al-Medina Surau at the KLIA district police headquarters here yesterday.

“They (the suspects) are still under remand, but if the DPP says (the suspect) can be charged tomorrow, then tomorrow it will be, otherwise, Monday,” he added.

Noor Azam said the suspect had refused to reveal the motive for the murder, but that the police had nevertheless obtained hard evidence in the case.

The Sepang Magistrate’s Court yesterday extended the remand of a Nigerian man for seven days until May 30 to facilitate investigations into Siti Kharina’s murder.

The 36-year-old suspect was initially remanded for a week on May 17.

A Nigerian woman and a Pakistani man have also been detained in the case.

Selangor Criminal Investigation Department chief Fadzil Ahmat recently said the remand on the two suspects had been extended for seven days until May 29.

Siti Kharina, 40, was reported missing on May 8. She was found dead with slash wounds on her chest, neck and head on May 15 by the owner of her rented condominium unit in Cyberjaya on May 15.
