SERIAN: An Indonesian woman was found dead with slash wounds on her neck at a house in Kampung Bedup Longgok here today.

The victim, 36, whose identity could not be immediately ascertained, was found in the living room by her husband this afternoon.

It was learnt that the victim’s husband had just returned home from fetching their eight-year-old daughter from school.

“The husband has been arrested to facilitate investigation into the case,” he said.

Police, said Dev, are in the process of recording statements and establish a motive for the murder.
