Indonesian man allegedly kills his employer's father, 74, over RM100
An Indonesian man believed to be in his 30s, has been accused of beating up a 74-year-old man in Selangor, Malaysia over RM100 (S$38).
The suspect and his wife have currently gone missing.
The elderly man, named Kow Sin, was alone at home when the incident happened on Wednesday (Nov 19).
The suspect entered his house looking to collect RM100 owed by Kow's 34-year-old son, Tein Fook.
Tein however, was not in at the time.
The suspect is believed to be Tein's employee.
Short on wages
The 34-year-old was reportedly short of RM100 when he paid the Indonesian's wages two days ago.
When Tein returned home, he found his father unconscious in the living room with wounds on his head.
Kow was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead when he arrived.
Police have arrested the suspect's housemate to assist in the investigations.
The housemate is believed to have recommended the suspect for employment.
The case is being investigated as murder.
