Murder in Malaysia

"Setting the stage for a lurid courtroom drama that is sure to grip a country that officially sees itself as upright and puritanical, one of Malaysia’s most prominent political analysts has been charged with the gruesome slaying of a Mongolian 'free lance' fashion model who claimed that he was her lover and the father of her infant child.

"The skeletal remains of the 28-year old woman, described as 'stunning' in press reports, shot twice and torn apart by explosives, were found by police on November 6 in a jungle hilltop near Kuala Lumpur after she had been reported missing. She was later identified through DNA testing."
