A 66-year-old local man killed his 71-year-old wife with a cleaver and a pair of scissors on Wednesday after they had a heated argument earlier this week over the possible sale of their flat, the Judiciary Police (PJ) said yesterday, adding that the couple had been quarrelling for years over the percentage of money the man would get from the possible sale of their flat near the Barrier Gate border checkpoint.

PJ spokesman Tam Weng Keong revealed details of the case during a special press conference yesterday.

Tam identified the victim as a 71-year-old local surnamed Ieong.

According to Tam, the man, surnamed Loi, called for an ambulance shortly after 3 a.m. on Wednesday, saying that his wife was injured in their flat on the sixth floor of Hung Wan Kok Building in Istmo de Ferreira do Amaral.
