Suara Pembaruan reports that following an extended manhunt, a 32-year-old man, identified only with the initials of MS, has been apprehended in connecion with the killing of a Balinese policeman.

MS was discovered hiding in the village of Sebanen, Jember, East Java.

Police had been hunting for the man for more than a week when found cowering in the chicken coop owned by a religious leader of the village.

The head of the Denpasar Municipal Police Precinct, Djoko Hariutomo, confirmed the capture of the man on Sunday, December 22, 2013. He said the man was caught at 5:30 am while asleep and offered no resistance to the apprehending officers.

Police said they would now question the man, including determining who may have aided him in his escape from Bali.

MS is accused of killing a Balinese police Commissioner Putu Suarsa (49). The killing took place at the home of the accused at Jalan Kerta Dalem Sari IV in Sidarkya, Denpasar on Sunday, December 15, 2013.

The murder was reportedly a spontaneous reaction to threats made by the Balinese policeman who was working in an unauthorized “side job” as a debt collector. MS retaliated to threats and rough treatment from the policeman by stabbing him to death.

The policeman was reportedly trying to grab MS’ motorcycle as a guarantee for an outstanding Rp. 2.5 million (US$208) debt he was attmepting to collect when the man took a kitchen knife and stabbed Putu Suarsa in the back.

The wounded policeman, who was an assistant in charge of detention and evidence at Bali Police Headquarters, died at the scene of the attack.
