Singapore—Natalie Siow Yu Zhen, the only female suspect in the much-publicised Orchard Towers murder, was summoned back to court on Friday (Oct 18). She was in tears as she received the news that her sentence was reduced.

Siow, if convicted, now faces two years in jail along with a S$5,000 fine.

Siow previously faced the death penalty for being among the seven other suspects charged with the murder of Satheesh Noel Gobidass (31) in July.

Court findings state that Siow merely kicked and punched the victim.

According to Siow’s lawyer, she had “no idea what was going on” when she was summoned to court. She then broke down crying when she found out her reduced sentence.

The other suspects—Tan Sen Yang, Joel Tan Yun Sheng and Ang Da Yuan—are still charged with murder.
