A jealous husband in Belaga, Sarawak had suspected his wife of having an affair, and when an argument over his suspicions got out of control, he allegedly killed her.  

After realising what he had done, he then attempted to take his own life but quick thinking neighbours informed the police who rushed him to the hospital. 

The 9.10pm incident happened at the couple's home at Uma Balui Ukap Longhouse in Sungai Asap on Sunday night. 

The husband had slashed his 25-year-old wife's neck and then tried to do the same on himself, local police said. 

Dayak Daily reported that longhouse residents realised what was going on and one of them peeped into a hole and saw the dead wife lying in a pool of blood and her husband unconscious next to her.

The 36-year-old suspect, who works at a logging camp in Long Bala, 
was rushed to the Sg Asap Clinic before being brought to Bintulu Hospital.

No details were given as to the whereabouts of the couple's two children.
