Son killed mum

A 60-year-old rubber tapper died after her son allegedly slashed her head with a parang at their house in Kampung Padang Buluh, Sidam Kiri near here.

The woman's body was found sprawled in a pool of blood in the kitchen by a relative.

She had just returned home from tapping rubber and was about to prepare lunch for herself and her son when the latter attacked her.

It is learnt that the suspect, aged 26, the youngest of six siblings, lived with the woman at the house.
