SANDAKAN: A voyeur who filmed his neighbour having sex with his wife was stabbed to death by the enraged neighbour.
The voyeur, identified as La Kampo, had been showing the video clip of the couple to friends and even to the neighbour's son.
Police have arrested the 44-year-old neighbour.
La Kampo's body was sent to the Duchess of Kent Hospital here for a post-mortem.
It was learnt that at about 7.30pm on Tuesday, La Kampo had gone to his neighbour's house in their village off Jalan Utara here.
He told the neighbour's 17-year-old son about the video recording without realising that the neighbour, who was at home, overheard the conversation.
When the son ignored him, La Kampo returned to his house about 20m away.
The neighbour was believed to have taken a knife and gone to La Kampo's house where he allegedly stabbed him repeatedly in an apparent fit of rage.
La Kampo sustained multiple stab wounds and died on the spot.
The neighbour took the murder weapon and turned himself in to the police about an hour after the incident.
Sandakan police chief Asst Comm Rowell Marong said both men were Indonesians and worked as labourers.
In an unrelated case, two policemen were injured while trying to arrest a member of an extortion group at Kampung Sentosa Jaya, off Jalan Utara on Tuesday.
Kons Muhammad Hida Shaffiq Aziz, 20, was stabbed in the back and buttocks while his colleague L/Kpl Hadi Hassan, 31, sustained cuts on his left palm in the 12.45am incident.
Despite being injured, they managed to overpower and arrest the suspect.
Muhammad Hida has been warded at the Duchess of Kent Hospital and is reported to be in stable condition. - theStarOnline
