A British woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder after her British husband was found stabbed to death on the Malaysian holiday island of Langkawi after a row.
Samantha Jones, 62, is alleged to have stabbed John Jones, also 62, in the chest during a row. The retired fireman, was found with a knife wound at their home on the island of Langkawi.
Local police chief Mohamad Iqbal Ibrahim said:
“The couple were believed to have engaged in an argument. The wife then took a knife from the kitchen and stabbed her husband in the chest.”
A 12 inch knife was found on the floor of the couple’s bedroom covered in blood stains, he added.
Local media reported the victim’s body was discovered early Thursday after neighbours alerted police.
The wife will be sentenced to death by hanging if she is found guilty of murdering her husband because currently, murder carries a mandatory death sentence in Malaysia.
