The Jakarta Post
The South Tangerang Police arrested on Tuesday two men suspected of killing a woman in her own home.
The suspects, Ridwan Setiadi, 23, and Ardi Setiadi, 20, were caught by police in Subang, West Java, two days after the alleged murder.
Police said the pair had planned to steal the 22-year-old victim’s ATM card.
Ridwan, who was also the victim’s boyfriend, reportedly knew the latter’s ATM personal identification number (PIN) and how much money she kept in the bank account, said South Tangerang Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Fadli Widiyanto.
The two suspects allegedly approached the victim on Sunday evening at her home in Kademangan sub-district, South Tangerang, Banten, where Ridwan goaded her into an argument. Ardi then allegedly strangled the victim, while Ridwan stabbed her.
Fadli said that Ridwan was on the police’s most wanted list (DPO) for a robbery committed in Cisauk, Tangerang, in 2014.
Both suspects have been charged under Article 340 and 365 of the Criminal Code (KUHP) on premeditated murder and aggravated robbery. (rdi)
