“There is no special treatment for Mujianto. But we will provide a separate room for him so it will be easier to monitor the suspect,” prison chief Imam Sarwoto said Sunday in Nganjuk, East Java, as reported by Antara news agency.
He said that he also worried about other prisoners’ safety, should Mujianto be placed with other prisoners in the same room.
However, Mujianto, who is still in police custody, has not yet been transferred to the prison.
“We are waiting for the update,” Imam said, citing the prison’s readiness to accept Mujianto.
Mujianto told the police that he had poisoned up to 15 gay men whom he thought were having affairs with his boss turned boyfriend, Joko.
The Nganjuk Police is currently investigating the case, saying that the number of victims could be growing as the police receive more reports on allegedly other victims of Mujianto, Antara reported.
