SINGAPORE — A 22-year-old man who is suspected of killing two family members in a Commonwealth Avenue flat was charged on Monday (18 November) with the murder of his 90-year-old grandmother.

Gabriel Lien Goh was first charged in court on 28 October with the murder of his 56-year-old mother Lee Soh Mui at Block 7A Commonwealth Avenue. The two murders allegedly happened on 27 October.

At the State Courts, where he appeared via video-link, Goh was also ordered to be further remanded for psychiatric evaluation.

The police prosecutor successfully applied for an extension of his remand, citing a request by the Institute of Mental Health.

The case will be mentioned in court again next Monday.

If found guilty of murder, Goh faces the death penalty.
