Hubby strangles wife’s lover and buries body in field
PETALING JAYA: A love triangle ended in tragedy when a man killed his wife’s boyfriend and later buried the body in a field in Kinrara.
The victim, a bus conductor, is believed to have been killed after he was lured by the husband and his three friends to discuss the love affair at about 11pm yesterday.
During the meeting, the husband is believed to have strangled the victim out of rage when the latter confirmed the affair.
Following a public tip-off, police nabbed the four men, aged between 30 and 40, at about 3am.
Investigations led them to the buried body in a field in Taman Damai Utama, Kinrara.
Police discovered strangulation marks around the victim’s neck and a severe blow to the back of his head with a blunt object.
Selangor deputy CID chief Asst Comm Omar Mamah confirmed the murder and the arrests.
