Earlier today (September 17), a couple was charged with murdering their two-and-a-half-year-old daughter in March of 2014.

The child’s remains were only discovered last Tuesday, as a burnt corpse in a metal pot.

The parents, a 31-year-old man and 30-year-old woman, cannot be named due to a gag order. The police were only alerted to the case on September 10, 2019 at around 8.30pm, after residents smelled an unusual and pungent odour coming from the flat on the eighth-storey in Block 52 of Chin Swee Road.

When the police arrived, they discovered the remains of what was initially assumed to be that of a foetus, but actually belonged to a two-and-a-half-year-old toddler.

The couple is believed to be married with at least three children, and were also the registered occupants of the Chin Swee Road flat.

Both suspects have been remanded since June 2018 for other unrelated offences.

The man had previously been charged with drug-related offences and rioting. On September 9, the woman was sentenced to jail after pleading guilty to drug related charges and theft, a CNA article reported.

Offenders who are convicted of murder will face the death penalty. -/TISG
