A Malaysian court condemned to death a Nigerian, Alowonle Oluwajuwon Gilbert, for the murder of a nurse.
Gilbert will die by hanging after being convicted of murdering Siti Kharina, mother of three.
The presiding judge, Ab Karim Ab Rahman, said the prosecution proved its evidence beyond a reasonable doubt.
Site Kharina, who was the head nurse at Serdang Hospital in Malaysia, was reported missing on May 8, 2019.
According to reports, she was last seen in the Serdang Hospital parking lot at four o’clock that day.
Kharina was found dead on 15 May 2019, wounded in the chest, neck and head.
Gilbert was charged with murder pursuant to Article 302 of the Penal Code.
The accused had told the court that he had left the deceased’s home on May 8, 2019, testimony that the judge ruled to be false.
The judge added that “the accused’s allegations contradicted the images of a CCTV camera in the 3rd Avenue condominium, Cyberjaya, which recorded it leaving the premises on May 9.”
The judge said, “The testimony by the accused that he was no longer with the victim on May 8, 2019, and had left the residence by then, is merely a denial.”
According to him, the defence could not erase his name from the bloodstains containing the DNA of the dead nurse found on the shirt he wore on May 9, 2019.
