SINGAPORE - A 38-year-old woman who was last week charged with culpable homicide over the death of her 32-year-old former boyfriend at a multi-storey carpark in Bedok earlier this year will continue to stay in remand.

Alverna Cher Sheue Pin is accused of causing Wee Jun Xiang’s death at Deck 4B of Block 145A Bedok Reservoir Road between 1.44pm and 5.15pm on 16 May.

Cher, who is the director of funeral services firm City Funeral Singapore, was on Thursday (10 December) represented by pro-bono lawyers Josephus Tan, Marshall Lim and Cory Wong of Invictus Law.

She was unrepresented when her case was first mentioned last Thursday.

The lawyers did not object to the prosecutor’s request for her to be remanded for further investigations.

The case will be mentioned again next Thursday (17 December).

In an earlier statement, the police said they were alerted to a case of an unnatural death at the carpark and Wee was pronounced dead on the spot.

Cher, who was identified as Wee’s ex-girlfriend, was arrested for her suspected involvement in his death.

If convicted of culpable homicide not amounting to murder, Cher faces life behind bars, or up to 20 years’ jail along with a fine.
