Singapore — A Singapore man is wanted for the murder of his wife’s lover in Malaysia, according to a report from The Straits Times.
The man allegedly stabbed his wife’s lover early Sunday morning in the Malaysian state of Pahang, then attacked his wife, before fleeing the scene.
The victim, a 32-year-old China national who had previously worked in Singapore, later died of his injuries.
The incident happened about 3am in a house in the subdistrict of Triang.
The man suspected his wife of having an affair and drove to Malaysia to confront the man.
The Shin Min Daily News reported that the Singapore man, a taxi driver in his 40s, attacked the lover with a knife after talks did not go as planned.
The report said that the victim had resigned from his job in Singapore to leave with the woman for Malaysia, and was worried for her safety.
It also said one of the couple’s children was in the house when the attack took place.
The woman went to a hospital in an ambulance.
Malaysian police did not reveal the suspect’s name, citing security reasons, but notified the Singapore police.
