The incident happened at around 9.30pm on Saturday, 21 October.
A 27-year-old woman was stabbed to death by her own cousin in Temerloh, Pahang on Saturday, 21 October
According to a report by New Straits Times (NST) yesterday, 22 October, the victim, Robiatul Ain Mahamod was stabbed by her 26-year-old cousin who was armed with a pair of scissors and a knife, at a house in Taman Temerloh Makmur on Saturday night.
The victim had apparently got into an argument with her cousin after accusing him of taking drugs and stealing from the house
The accusations angered her cousin, who ended up stabbing her repeatedly in the face and shoulder with a knife and a pair of scissors, which left her bleeding out in the living room.
Robiatul was rushed to Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Hospital (HOSHAS) and she died there while receiving treatment.
NST reported that Pahang Criminal Investigations Department chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Othman Nanyan had confirmed the incident and informed that the victim was the daughter of a police sergeant attached to the Temerloh district police station.
"During the incident, only the victim and suspect were in the house although the victim's husband and younger brother also lived there," Othman told NST.
"Angry with the accusations, the suspect repeatedly stabbed the victim in the face and shoulder," he added.
Othman explained that a neighbour had reportedly heard the arguments in the house and immediately contacted the victim's father and younger brother.
"When the victim's father and brother arrived at the house, they found the front door locked, which they broke to get in.
"On entering the house, they found the victim on the floor in the living room and they quickly took her to the hospital. However, the victim was pronounced dead an hour later," said Othman.
The suspect was arrested at around 10pm last night, 22 October. The authorities reportedly found him hiding at the back of an empty house about 112km away from the scene of the crime.
"In the garage of the empty house, we recovered the knife and scissors used in the incident. Investigation is still ongoing under Section 302 of the Penal Code for Murder," said Othman.
