Maid in Penang forced to sleep outdoor with Rottweiler dies: Neighbours

The woman then bought iodine for Adelina. The maid had apparently agitated her wound worsening the healing process

It was learnt that among the accusations of abuse made was that the maid had apparently slept in the vehicle porch together with the dog for more than one month.

"We hope that with the help of the local authorities, the matter can be resolved", she said when contacted. This corresponded to neighbours' claims that she was fed poorly.

She said the 26-year-old came to Malaysia to work for her current employer in 2014.

Sources said the woman was believed to have gone there to seek legal assistance for her two children.

The victim who went by the name of Adelina was seated outside of her employer's house, and she would only nod her head when questions were posed to her, especially over whether she was in pain or, on which area she was abused.

Kurniati said the consulate was still in the midst of tracing Adelina's family in Indonesia, as the latter's passport had indicated a different address.

He said before Tenaganita volunteers arrive, the employer bundled Adelina into her auto and drove out of the house.

Her employers, a 36-year-old woman and her 39-year-old brother, were detained on Saturday to assist in the investigation.

It was reported that Adelina was rescued by police on Saturday following suspected repeated abuse by her employers.

Adelina was subsequently taken to the police station by her employers, and later admitted to the Bukit Mertajam Hospital.

He said investigations were ongoing, and police would record statements from neighbours, the maid's agent and friends, and the doctors who had treated her.

Police are expected to produce them in court for a remand order later.

Chief Justice Tun Md Raus Sharif sentenced store owner Soh Chew Tong and his wife Chin Chui Ling to the jail term for committing culpable homicide, instead of murder.

The report said the maid was found at her employers' home with severe injuries on her head and face, along with infected wounds on her hands and legs.

She had sunken cheeks and eye-sockets, and weighed only 26.1kg at the time of her death.
