A 35-year-old man by the name of Johnboy John Teo has been charged with murdering his own daughter, two-year-old Ashley Clare Teo, at their home on Father’s Day.

Court documents show that the police found the child lying motionless when they arrived at the home, located at Block 163B Rivervale Crescent, around 10.30pm on Sunday (16 June). The girl’s father was also found in the same room with injuries.

Teo and Ashley were admitted at Sengkang General Hospital, where Ashley was pronounced dead hours later, around 12.30am on Monday. Teo was charged with the murder of his daughter while he was in the hospital today (18 June).

According to the Chinese daily, Teo is divorced from his wife – a woman who is identified as Ms Cheok. Ms Cheok received custody of Ashley in March and the pair moved out of the home they shared with Teo about a month ago.

Teo had visitation rights to Ashley on Sunday and Ms Cheok sent her child off with her father on Saturday. When Teo did not return the child home like he was supposed to on Sunday evening, Ms Cheok alerted the police.

Teo will return to court in July to face his charge. He will face mandatory death penalty if he is convicted of murder.Follow us on Social Media
