A man who was supposed to get married on Sunday was killed in front of his fiancee in Jalan Dedap, Johor Baru - a day before his wedding.
Indra Asrul, 29, was stabbed four times in the stomach by three Myanmar nationals, including a woman, on Saturday night.
He died on the spot, reported The New Straits Times.
His fiancee, who wanted to be known only as Sharina, watched helplessly as her lover was savagely attacked by their former housemates.
This was over an incident, which allegedly took place a week ago, when one of the men walked into the bathroom when she was taking a shower, Sharina told The Star.
She told reporters at the Sultanah Aminah Hospital mortuary on Sunday: "The bathroom door was faulty and could not be locked properly.
"Indra confronted him over this but after the first incident, I suspected that the man took a peep whenever I showered."
Over these alleged incidents, she said, an argument broke out between her fiance and the Myanmar man.
The couple then decided to move to another house.
She told their landlord about their problems and were also advised to move out to prevent any trouble.
"We moved out and stayed with a relative temporarily while we looked for a new place to stay as newly-weds.
"We returned to the shophouse on Saturday to get some of our things but before we could do so, the three rushed downstairs and attacked my fiance," she said.
One of the men used a metal rod and repeatedly stabbed Indra in the stomach, Sharina said. She added that all three then fled the scene.
"I could only hold him while waiting for the ambulance but he died 15 minutes later," she said.
The couple were supposed to marry on Sunday. They had been planning their wedding for more than a year.
Seri Alam OCPD Superintendent Roslan Zainuddin said the police were still identifying the suspects. Police have classified the case as murder.
