SERDANG - A 47-year-old man has been arrested over the murder of a woman in a parking lot in Puchong.

Serdang OCPD Asst Comm Ismadi Borhan said the suspect, who is the woman's ex-husband, was arrested in Genting Highlands at about 2am yesterday (Feb 20).

"The woman was a Chinese national with a Permanent Resident status. Her family members - her daughter and younger sister - have identified the body at Serdang Hospital," he said when contacted.

Post-mortem on the body, added ACP Ismadi, showed the cause of death to be multiple wounds from a sharp object.

"There were wounds on her neck and head, and on the front as well the back of her body. We believe the murder weapon to be a knife," he said, adding that the suspect had been put on remand until Feb 26.

"We are ruling out theft as a motive as the victim's belongings were not missing," he said. ACP Ismadi also urged anyone with information to contact the Serdang district police headquarters at 03-8074 2222 or the nearest police station.

The body of the woman, in her 50s, was found in a pool of blood in a parking lot in Pusat Bandar Puchong Jaya at about 10.20pm on Wednesday.
