PETALING JAYA, Feb 5 — A 37-year-old man drove to a police station here today with the body of a woman beside him and confessed that he had killed his colleague whom he had also dated, police said.

Petaling Jaya police chief Assistant Commissioner Mohd Zani Che Din said the suspect drove a white Honda City belonging to his 35-year-old colleague, whom the suspect said he had murdered at a shopping centre in Kota Damansara, to the Damansara police station at 4pm.

“The suspect told the front desk receptionist that there was a body slumped in the front passenger seat of the vehicle and that he had killed the person in the mall’s parking lot around 1.30pm,” he said.

Several police officers then went to the vehicle and found the lifeless body of a woman with a stab wound in the neck, before arresting the suspect who appeared calm throughout the entire process.

Mohd Zani said the victim was believed to have been stabbed with a sharp object, as police also recovered the suspected murder weapon from the car.

He said the motive for the murder was not known and the suspect had been acquainted with the victim for at least two years. Both worked in a condominium’s management office.

The deceased will be brought to Universiti Malaya Medical Centre for a post-mortem.
