The boyfriend of the University student who was found dead in her boarding room in Banyuasri village, Singaraja, Indonesia, last Thursday, has admitted to killing the victim, allegedly because he was jealous of her male college friends.
The man, identified only by his initials, KI, was arrested by police hours after the body of his girlfriend, 20-year-old Ni Made Ayu Serli Mahardika, was discovered by concerned friends.
Amid addressing, the suspect told police that he’d submitted the horrendous demonstration in an attack of wild envy.
“It is realized that the unfortunate casualty was in a sentimental association with the culprit and the culprit submitted his activities as a result of envy in light of the fact that the injured individual regularly assembled with her male school companions,” said Singaraja City Police Chief AA Wiranata Kusuma to columnists on Friday as cited by Kumparan.
As per Wiranata, KI touched base at Serli’s home on the night of Mon, April 8, where he continued to cover her face with a pad while over and again punching her neck until she was dead.
A while later, he cleaned the boarding room and secured Serli’s body with a cover.
The aftereffects of the post-mortem are reliable with KI’s record and point towards suffocation as the reason for death.
“The reason for death was because of aviation route concealment making the body come up short on oxygen,” said Dr. Dudut Rustyadi, the head of crime scene investigation at Sanglah Hospital, as cited by Tribun Bali.
Serli’s body was set apart with wounds on the brow, lips, and neck, likely brought about by savage blows.
In the interim, the supposed culprit told police that he lamented his activities, saying that he couldn’t control his feelings and hadn’t understood that he’d really murdered her.
“I’m heartbroken. Around then, my feelings were wild and I didn’t realize I had done it,” he stated, as cited by Bali Post.
Serli and KI had known each other since middle school and had begun dating in October 2018. KI currently faces the risk of 15 years in jail for homicide.
