SINGAPORE: MAN SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR KILLING PREGNANT WIFE, DAUGHTER

November 15, 2020:

A former property agent was sentenced to death on 12 November 2020 after he was found guilty of murdering his pregnant wife and their four-year-old daughter.
"This is a tragic case. It is a case of lives lost, a family torn asunder," said High Court judge Kannan Ramesh in delivering his decision.
Teo Ghim Heng, 45, had strangled his wife Choong Pei Shan, 39, a housewife who was six months pregnant, and daughter Zi Ning in their Woodlands flat on 20 January 2017. He spent a week with their bodies in the flat before setting the corpses on fire, the court heard in a trial that started in July last year.
Justice Ramesh convicted Teo of two counts of murder, which carry the mandatory death penalty.
The judge rejected the defence's arguments that Teo was suffering from depression, and that he had been provoked and lost control after his wife called him "useless" in front of their daughter.
According to Teo, a "red mist" descended upon him and his mind went blank. He strangled her with a bath towel before using his bare hands to make sure she was dead. He then strangled his daughter.
Justice Ramesh said the sequence of events clearly showed that Teo was in full control of his faculties when he strangled his wife and daughter.
"Such behaviour shows full control on the part of the accused... He knew exactly what he was doing, and his actions were goal-orientated," said the judge.
Teo's lawyers said he intends to appeal against the court's decision.
