Indonesian sentenced to death over murder of AmBank officer

SHAH ALAM - Indonesian La Ode Ardi Rasila was sentenced to death by a High Court here over the murder of an AmBank officer last year.

High Court judge Justice Akhtar Tahir ruled that the prosecution has proven the case against the 37-year-old Indonesian beyond reasonable doubt.

The security guard was ordered on Thursday to be hanged until death for committing robbery and firing a pump-action shotgun at the officer with the intention to kill her.

On Oct 23 last year, AmBank officer Norazita Abu Talib, 37, was shot dead by the bank's security guard with a pump gun when she and a colleague were opening a safe in the bank at Jalan USJ Sentral 2 in Subang Jaya.

The guard was reported to have escaped with RM450,000 (S$177,00).
