The Myanmar Times - - News -

A man who beat his aunt to death was killed while try­ing to es­cape the crime scene, of­fi­cers at the Kyauk­tada My­oma Po­lice Sta­tion said.

The sus­pect, Ko Myat Ko Ko Hlaing from Than­lyin town­ship, brought biryani to his aunt’s house in Kyauk­tada town­ship in the morn­ing on Septem­ber 18. He vis­ited with his cousin Daw Hnin Pa Pa Lwin, and they had what she re­ported as a nor­mal con­ver­sa­tion.

But while Daw Hnin Pa Pa Lwin went to the bath­room, she over­heard an ar­gu­ment be­tween her mother, Daw Kyin Hmwe, and her cousin. When she came back into the room she saw Ko Myat Ko Ko Hlaing punch­ing her mother.

When Daw Hnin Pa Pa Lwin at­tempted to de­fend her mother, the sus­pect picked up an iron stick and started beat­ing them. Ko Myat Ko Ko Hlaing then leapt from the back of the house to es­cape and fell to his death.

Daw Hnin Pa Pa Lwin sus­tained in­juries on her head, but her mother had deep cuts 5 and 3 inches long, as well as a stab wound. Daw Kyin Hmwe, 65, died at Yan­gon Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal. – Toe Wai Aung, trans­la­tion by Win
