PETALING JAYA: A 38-year-old mechanic has been arrested for killing his wife after she exposed his affair on social media.
Police said the 28-year-old woman was brought to Kajang Hospital in an unconscious state by her husband on Raya eve. She died of her injuries later that evening.
The medical officer filed a police report after finding the death suspicious.
“The victim had bruises on her body. The cause of death was determined to be an abdominal injury due to a blow by a blunt weapon,” said Kajang district police chief Zaid Hassan.
