The 32-year-old security guard then ran to a nearby private clinic to seek treatment.

According to Lahad Datu OCPD Asst Comm Nasri Mansor, the woman's attack was motivated by years of violent behaviour and infidelity by her husband
"He always abused and hit her. He had been cheating on her since 2014, but she overlooked his infidelity to save their marriage," he said.
"He never gave her, nor their children, any money," he added.
The suspect did not attempt to run away before being arrested
She led the police to the murder weapon, The Star reported.

"The suspect was then taken to the Cenderawasih police station for further investigations," ACP Nasri said.

The case is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
