KUALA LUMPUR: A pregnant woman who was murdered by her boyfriend on Tuesday in Sungai Besar was confirmed to have died from stab wounds on her chest.
Sabak Bernam district police chief Superintendent Agus Salim Mohd Alias said the matter was confirmed following an autopsy conducted at the Sungai Buloh Hospital today.
"The results of the autopsy revealed that the cause of death was due to stab wounds on the chest on her burnt body," he said when contacted today.

The burial is expected to be held tonight at Kampung Nelayan cemetery here.

Previously, it was reported that an argument to conceal an out-of-wedlock pregnancy between a young couple turned deadly when the woman was brutally murdered at an oil palm plantation in Jalan Sungai Limau here on Tuesday.
The victim, who was a waitress at a restaurant there, was stabbed to death in the abdomen and had the fetus removed before her body was burned in the 8.10am murder.
The case came to light when members of the public found the charred remains of the victim at a palm oil plantation here.
