A case of the proverbial “I killed you because I love you”?

A Singaporean man has been arrested for allegedly murdering his wife and step-son.

The victims are believed to be a 27-year old Malaysian woman and her 11-year old son. Their remains have been found dismembered among the bushes adjacent to the Krubong industrial area in Melaka, Malaysia last Thursday. The son was also murdered because he witnessed what was done to his mother.

Greetings to the dead?

The murder suspect posted a ‘sincere’ birthday greeting in a Facebook post last Sunday. But it is believed that she could have been dead by then – murdered and then decapitated by the husband.

Confirming the arrest and handover yesterday, Singapore police told The New Paper: “It is inappropriate to comment further as investigations by (Malaysian police) are ongoing.”

Chop-chop lady

The suspect allegedly chopped up the two bodies with a parang and discarded the parts in two locations. Malaysian police believe the victims had been dead for four or five days before the eight body parts – minus heads and hands – had been found, Malaysian newspaper The Star reported.
Based on estimates of the timing of the murder, it indicated that the wife was killed around the time the suspect posted his birthday wishes last Sunday morning. In his Facebook profile, they got married in March last year. This was the man’s third marriage, as reported by Chinese-language newspaper Lianhe Wanbao on Saturday.
Loving and romantic?
With a photograph of them together, he wrote in Malay: “Dear wife, as you get older, we must remember to always be thankful for our blessings. Happy birthday my beloved wife, here’s wishing you good health, wellness, strength and success. You are definitely a super mum to our kids and a great wife to me. I pray to always be with you in every step you take. Happy birthday my wife.”
The post went viral on Facebook with 15,000 comments and 7,000 shares as of yesterday. The suspect had previously often posted photos and affectionate captions of him and his wife together.
Argument then death

According to The New Paper, the alleged murders were sparked by a heated argument between the couple over family issues at night. When the wife threatened to divorce the suspect, he allegedly went into a rage and stabbed her with a kitchen knife.

When he noticed his stepson saw what he did, he also allegedly stabbed him. He was the oldest of her four children from her previous marriage.

The suspect, who sustained minor injuries on his finger and chest, later allegedly used a parang to decapitate the victims’ heads and chopped up their bodies.

The body parts were then packed into bags and loaded into the boot of a car for disposal.

The suspect is currently detained at the Bandar Hilir Police Station in Malaysia. -/TISG
