A woman and her brother were recently charged in the Magistrate's Court for the murder of her blind husband
According to New Straits Times, the perpetrators are 45-year-old GS Angela Dewi who operates an eatery and her brother, 42-year-old Vijaya, an eatery assistant.
They were arrested for the murder of R Devarajoo at the PKNS low-cost housing area in Kampung Baru Sungai Chua. The incident took place around noon on 1 October.
When the court interpreter read the charge under Section 302 of the Penal Code before Magistrate Muhammad Noor Firdaus Rosli, the two nodded to indicate that they understood. No plea was recorded.
Police said that the woman initially lodged a report over a robbery at their home.
However, further investigations found that she killed her husband herself with help from her brother.
Kajang district police chief ACP Mohd Zaid Hassan told Harian Metro that the wife filed a report claiming that the victim was robbed by a man who stole his necklace while outside their home.
He then added that the victim was hit in the head with a hammer and the weapon used during the incident was confiscated by the police.
"The victim sustained serious injuries to his head before he was pronounced dead on 10 October while receiving treatment at Kajang Hospital," he said.
"Investigations found that the suspect planned to kill her husband and conspired with her brother."
The woman reportedly murdered her husband in order to inherit RM2,000,000 from his business and RM800,000 from his life insurance
Bernama reported that the victim ran a transportation and scrap metal business which involves a cashflow of RM2,000,000.
The woman and her brother are now liable to mandatory death sentences according to Section 302 of the Penal Code. Magistrate Noor Firdaus set 21 December for mention and he did not allow bail.
