Fitchburg man goes in trial in wife's death

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER (AP) - The trial of a Fitchburg man charged with killing his wife with an overdose of morphine then putting her body in a suitcase and leaving it in the woods is getting under way.

Opening statements in the murder trial of 32-year-old nurse Asim Amran are scheduled for Tuesday in Worcester Superior Court.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that prosecutors say Amran killed 27-year-old Faiza Malik, whose decomposed body was found Aug. 20, 2009, in a suitcase in Oxford, about 30 miles from their home. An autopsy determined that she died of morphine poisoning.

She was reported missing by family members on Jan. 4, 2009.

Amran's lawyer could not be reached.
