Malaysian woman stabbed to death by samurai sword after refusing sex with husband -- leaving 8 kids behind

Norminah Bollok died at Semporna district hospital in Malaysia after getting slashed and stabbed by her husband for refusing to have sex with him at 4am on Sun (Jan 22).

Semporna OSPD Supt Peter Umbuas confirmed the incident took place at their house at Kampung Pinggir Bakau.

The 50-year-old husband has gone into hiding after neighbours reported what had happened to the police.

Supt Umbuas said, "We have launched a hunt for the suspect who fled the house with a bag containing the documents of his children.'' 

According to The Star and Asia News Network via AsiaOne, he mentioned that authorities discovered a samurai sword believed to be the murder weapon.

Based on initial investigations, the suspect had woken up early and went to the 38-year-old wife's room to have sex but was turned down.

That angered the suspect who eventually pulled out the sword and slashed his wife.

His children rushed their mother to the hospital while he fled the scene.

The couple has eight children aged between 13 and 22. 

Four male and four female.
