MALAYSIA: SALESMAN TO HANG FOR FIANCEE'S MURDER
August 29, 2010: Judge Datuk Zamani A. Rahim of the Malaysian High Court sentenced salesman Raja Saiful Nizam Raja Ali, 28, from Bandar Amanjaya, Sungai Petani, to death for murdering his fiancee Rohayu Kasa, 28, on August 29, 2006, in Yan after an argument over bridal money.
The spat turned ugly when the accused beat his fiancee to death with a motorcycle helmet. He hid the body in a bush before surrendering to the police several hours later.
