Man in Malaysia threatens to kill family after wife refuses sex -- despite filing for divorce

A 57-year-old man from Jempol, Malaysia lost his temper and threatened to kill his wife and their children when she refused to have sex with him last Friday night (Mar 31).

When she turned him down he flew into a temper and smashed plates bowls and vases, reports The Star via AsiaOne.

His children were reportedly traumatised by the incident.

Jempol district police chief Supt Noorzainy Mohd Noor said:

"He ran amok and also damaged other things in the house. The man also broke the aquarium and then threatened to kill his wife and children," he said.
