I will surely be safe and sound: S'pore man linked to murder of wife's alleged lover

Wanted Singaporean cabby Quah Tee Keon surrendered himself to Kuala Lumpur police after 15 days on the run, but not before he made a series of outrageous allegations and claims to two newspapers.

He had allegedly stabbed his Malaysian wife, Ms Loong Mei Ling, 33, after slashing her alleged lover, Mr Ruan Chao Kiang, 32, to death in the early hours of Oct 13 in Triang, Pahang.

The cabby, who is reportedly 47 years old, claimed that the police have not been able to find the murder weapon, and this would work to his advantage.

"I'm confident in myself and I believe in justice. I will surely be safe and sound," he told Shin Min Daily News on Monday.

"I believe the house will not have a trace of my DNA."

His estranged wife had earlier left Singapore with their three young children to return to her hometown of Triang.

She alleged that he had physically abused her and Mr Ruan had followed her there to protect her.

She also claimed that she and Mr Ruan, a Chinese national who used to work with her, were not lovers.

The attack allegedly occurred when they were asleep on the same bed in a double-storey house.

Quah told Shin Min that he had found an "outstanding lawyer", before presenting himself to the cops with the lawyer by his side.
