Prosecutors Seek Life over Australian’s Murder
DENPASAR ~ Prosecutors sought a life sentence on Monday for a man accused of stabbing an Australian woman to death in North Kuta.
Ahmad Fahrul Rozi murdered 34-year-old Heidi Murphy as he tried to rob her villa in Canggu in February, prosecutor Eddy Artha Wijaya said.
“We urge the panel of judges to sentence Ahmad Fahrul Rozi to life imprisonment as he has been proven legally and convincingly to have committed a murder preceded by a robbery,” Wijaya told the Denpasar District Court.
Rozi allegedly fled Bali shortly after the murder but police tracked him down to the city of Malang, in East Java, where he was arrested.
Prosecutors also requested a 10-month jail sentence for another man accused of being an accomplice. The trial will resume on August 4.Filed under: The Island
