Former Penang assemblyman’s wife killed

GEORGE TOWN, Sept 23 – Former Bukit Tambun assemblyman Lai Chew Hock’s wife died after being stabbed during a robbery at their home in Nibong Tebal last night.

Thor Joo Lee, 46, who was stabbed in the abdomen, chest and shoulder, died en route to the hospital.

Lai, 44, said he heard his wife driving into the house compound on her return from their petrol kiosk at about 11.20pm yesterday.

“I went out to the balcony and saw a man following her. He tried to grab her bag but my wife put up a fight.

“I shouted at him and he stabbed my wife before climbing over the gate and jumping on a motorcycle ridden by an accomplice,” Lai said at the Penang Hospital today.
