Natalie Siow, the lone woman allegedly involved the Orchard Towers murder early in July, could not hold back her tears upon hearing that the charge of murder against her had been reduced to one of assault.

Her lawyer, Mr Amarick Gill of Amarick Gill LLC, said on Friday, October 18, that she was “elated” at the reduced charge and that she burst into tears when he told her of the change.

A murder conviction could lead to the death penalty, while a person convicted on an assault charge could face two years in prison, as well as a fine of S$5,000.

Yesterday night (October 22), in a Facebook post that has been either removed or had its privacy settings changed, Siow wrote: “ “trust yourself. you’ve survived a lot, and you’ll survive whatever is coming.” Thank you for the well wishes guys, appreciate it a lot”.

Siow was offered bail of S$15,000 on Friday and will be back in court on October 25.

The 23-year-old Siow was initially charged with the murder of Ms Satheesh, along with Tan Hong Sheng, 22; Loo Boon Chong, 25; Tan Sen Yang, 28; and Joel Tan Yun Sheng, Chan Jia Xing and Ang Da Yuan, all of whom are 26 years old.

They allegedly killed 31-year old Satheesh Noel Gobidass.

On the day of the incident, the victim collapsed near an escalator in the building and was found lying motionless in a pool of blood. Members of the public attended to his injuries.

The police were alerted at 6.25am, where the victim was sent to Tan Tock Seng Hospital unconscious and pronounced dead an hour later. /TISG
