The widow and teenage stepsons of a Malaysian CEO who died last year were charged with his murder Monday, in a shocking twist to a case that has captivated the country.
Nazrin Hassan was the chief executive of Cradle Fund, a Malaysian firm that is an agency of the finance ministry and invests in start-ups.
He died at his home outside Kuala Lumpur in June last year. It was initially thought he was killed after his mobile phone exploded and started a fire. But the fire and rescue department later found traces of petrol at the scene, and his death was reclassified as murder.
