AN unemployed man was charged at the Magistrate’s Court in Klang today with murdering his girlfriend at his house last month.
Lee Wei Shen, 24, nodded when the charge was read out to him before Magistrate Amirul Asyraf Abd Rasid.
However, no plea was recorded as murder cases come under the jurisdiction of the High Court.
Lee was charged with killing a 16-year-old girl at a house in Kampung Idaman, Port Klang at 3.40am on June 26.
The charge provides for the death sentence upon conviction.
The court set September 7 for mention of the case to obtain chemical, toxicology, post-mortem and forensic reports.
Deputy public prosecutor Nuruljannah Aimi appeared for the prosecution, while the defendant was not represented.
The media previously reported that a 16-year-old student was believed to have been killed by her boyfriend at the man’s house in Kampung Idaman. – Bernama, July 4, 2022.
