"The initial motive was that the suspect already had a future woman or wife. But the victim admitted that she was 4 months pregnant, so there was an intention to kill the victim. Because the suspect also had an intention to marry someone else", continued Yusri.
Yusri emphasized that it was for this reason that the suspect killed his lover. In fact, put the victim's body into sacks and cardboard to remove traces.
For his actions, the suspect AS was charged with Article 340 of the Criminal Code regarding premeditated murder. Thus, the maximum penalty is the death penalty.
