Ex Yeovil Fire Chief murdered in Malaysia

Nov 1, 2018

A Somerset woman has appeared in court in Malaysia charged with murdering her husband.

John Jones – a retired chief fire officer at Yeovil Fire Station – was killed at the couple’s home on the island of Langkawi last Tuesday, the 18th of October.

His wife, Samantha, who also worked in Somerset as an insurance clerk - is accused of stabbing her husband to death.

If found guilty, she faces the death penalty which in Malaysia is mandatory for murder.

Mrs Jones is due to appear in court again on 29th of November.

Meanwhile, her sister has flown from the UK to Malaysia and attended the court hearing.
