PETALING JAYA – Former aircraft cabin cleaning supervisor Ahmad Najib Aris was hanged Friday at the Kajang Prison following his conviction by the High Court for the rape and murder of IT analyst Canny Ong in 2003.
A spokesman from the Prisons Department confirmed that Ahmad Najib, 40, was executed at about 6am and was buried at the Sungai Kantan Muslim cemetery in Kajang near here.
On Feb 23, 2005, the Shah Alam High Court sentenced Ahmad Najib to death for raping and murdering Ong, 29, at KM11 of Old Jalan Road between 1am and 5am on June 14, 2003
This follows a unanimous decision by the Federal Court in March 2009 to uphold his death sentence for the crimes committed on Ong, whose charred remains were found in a manhole near a highway construction site. – ANN
