RN alias Ujang (43), a driver of Garut, was desperate to kill his own boss, Stephanus Editale (42), in a tragic manner. Ujang’s reckless action was motivated by salary arrears that his employer never paid.
The murder took place on the night of Friday (19/8), in the private house of Stephanus in the city of Bandung, West Java. During the incident, Ujang asks Stephanus about his unpaid salary for the past 1.5 months.
However, both of them got into a fight. Stephanus is known for not fulfilling Ujang’s wishes. For some reason, Stephen then curses Ujang and threatens to shoot Ujang.
Ujang, whose eyes were dark, immediately took a hammer and threw it at Stephanus’ face until he fell down. After that he hit him on the head several times with a hammer.
“After that, the suspect rained again using a hammer on the back of the head several times. Then after falling unconscious, the perpetrator looked for the cable to make sure the victim was dead,” he said.
Stephanus died, then was wrapped using a tablecloth, plastic, and a blanket. Then, Wiradhanto said, Ujung immediately took her to Garut using Stephanus’s personal car.
“At around 2 o’clock (Saturday), seeing that the situation was very dark and empty, the suspect finally threw the victim on the bridge (Sisevu). Then the items covered in blood, including the items used to kill the victim Was involved. Tossed around the area,” Virdanto said.
The matter came to light after the body of Stephanus was discovered on a bridge in Jalan Raya Sisevu in Garut district on Saturday (20/8).
