FURTHER REMAND FOR MURDER SUSPECT
KUALA LUMPUR: The remand order of a 23-year-old suspect, believed to have killed his mother at a condominium in Ampang on Oct 4, has been extended until Oct 17. The remand order was extended for seven days, Ampang Jaya police chief ACP Hamzah Alias said yesterday. The man was believed to have been high on drugs when he allegedly slashed his 49-year-old mother with a parang. He later went to the Bukit Indah community police station to surrender but got into a scuffle with policemen before he was detained.
