Duo charged with murder of woman at Woodlands flat
A COUPLE were charged in court yesterday with the murder of a woman at a Woodlands flat on Monday morning.
Pua Hak Chuan, 35, and Tan Hui Zhen, 31, allegedly caused the death of waitress Annie Ee Yu Lian, 26, at their third-floor unit in Block 878, Woodlands Avenue 8 at 9.38am.
The couple were calm when the charge was read to them in Mandarin.
They were remanded at the Central Police Division lock-up.
Ms Ee, who had worked in a Japanese restaurant at Causeway Point, addressed Tan as "big sister" and was not related to the couple.
Paramedics found her lying on a mattress in a bedroom of the flat.
The couple will return to court on Wednesday.
