Indonesian police arrest alleged serial sex killer

Indonesian police said Wednesday they had arrested a man who allegedly killed at least four men with tea laced with rat poison after having sex with them.


The 24-year-old, identified as Mujianto, was arrested on Monday in Nganjuk district of East Java province for the killings committed since the middle of last year, local police chief Anggoro Sukartono told reporters.

"He confessed he had attempted to kill 15 people. He said he did it because he was jealous that his male lover was having a sexual relationship with other men," he said.

"Four of the victims died, two survived, and we have no idea what happened to the others," he added.

Mujianto had offered his victims tea mixed with rat poison after he had sex with them, Sukartono said.

Under Indonesian law, Mujianto could face the death penalty if convicted of premeditated murder.

An Indonesian district court in 2009 sentenced to death self-confessed serial killer Verry Idham Henyansyah for murdering and dismembering his romantic rival and dumping his body in bags on a Jakarta roadside.
