However, his plans were foiled when the wife was saved by one of their children present at the scene

Kota Star Police chief ACP Mohd Rozi Jidin told Berita Harian that the 45-year-old man became furious after fighting with his wife around midnight at the parking lot.

He noted that according to initial investigations, family problems were the main cause of their fight.

Mohd Rozi also explained to Astro Awani that if the woman was not saved by her child, the case would have been classified as a murder.

"If she was not rescued, we would have probably classfied this case under Section 302 of the Penal Code. However, investigations are still ongoing to see what actions would be appropriate to be taken on the man," he said.

Instead, the case will be investigated under Section 307 for attempt to murder.
