Siti Kharina's murder: Nigerian man remanded 7 days
SEPANG: The Nigerian man arrested in connection with the murder of Siti Kharina Mohd Kamarudin, the chief nurse of Serdang Hospital on Saturday, was remanded for seven days from today.
The remand order was issued by Sepang Court Magistrate A Akhiruddin@Boy Acho until May 23 to assist the police in their investigation of the case under the Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
The handcuffed suspect clad in blue denim shirt, arrived at the courthouse here at 11am.
The 36-year-old was nabbed at 3.30pm yesterday at a cafe in Cheras Sentral, within 24 hours after Siti Kharina's body being found.
Based on initial investigation, the suspect was the last individual who was seen leaving the victim's house through a closed circuit television (CCTV) camera.
Two other suspects; a 38-year-old Pakistani and 35-year-old Nigerian woman who were arrested in connection with the case, had been remanded for seven days from Thursday onwards.
The partially clothed body of the forty-year-old nurse who went missing on May 8, was found dead with slash wounds on her chest, neck and head in her rented one-bedroom studio apartment unit in Third Avenue Condominium in Cyberjaya on May 15.
Siti Kharina’s body was discovered after investigating officers responded to a report made by the unit’s landlord who had spotted blood trail flowing out from the door.
The landlord had gone to the unit with the intention of repairing a faulty washing machine.
He was, however, unable to get in as it was locked and he sought the assistance from the condominium’s maintenance team to gain access.
Previously, Serdang Hospital had confirmed that Siti Kharina was last seen at the parking lot of the hospital at about 4pm last Wednesday.
