S’pore man allegedly kills wife’s lover

MALAYSIA - A Singaporean man who found his wife's lover in his home in Malaysia allegedly went on a rampage, killing the lover and injuring his wife.

This reportedly took place in front of his seven-year-old son.

The man then fled the home in Triang, Pahang.

Malaysian police have launched a manhunt for him, Malaysia's The Star reported.

The man, said to be a taxi driver in his 40s, is reported to have heard that his wife had brought a man to their home and he rushed there from Singapore.

Seeing his Malaysian wife's lover in his home, he reportedly confronted him, stabbing and slashing the 32-year-old Chinese national repeatedly.
