According to Malaysia’s “Shihua Daily”, recently, a Chinese man in Perak, Malaysia was suspected of being troubled by the pressure and emotional problems of caring for his sick father.
He swung a knife at home to kill his father and then dismembered his body. And dumped his body in three places.
The deceased was 74-year-old Yang Shiqin. After the incident, the police arrested the suspect (52 years old), the third son of the deceased. The suspect had confessed to the police that he had used methamphetamine before the incident.
Kamaludin, who was present with Justices Hadhariah Syed Ismail and Azman Abdullah, stated that Poh Khoon still had an opportunity to present his defense during his final appeal in the Federal Court.
Poh Khoon was charged and found guilty of murder for causing the death of You Su Kim, aged 74, between October 8 and October 9, at their residence in Khantan Baru, Chemor, near Ipoh in Perak.
The Ipoh High Court convicted him and sentenced him to death on May 25 of the previous year.
Based on the evidence presented, it was discovered that Poh Khoon murdered his father by decapitating him and dividing his body into six sections. Poh Khoon’s father had reprimanded him for using drugs in their home, which may have contributed to his violent outburst.
The perpetrator buried his father’s head in the backyard, while the remaining parts were disposed of in a sewage hole measuring 1.5 meters deep.
