He bought her presents, birthday cakes and flowers. But they werent having extra marital relationship….. Yah right!!!
SINGAPORE: A man accused of murdering his lover and burning her body told a psychiatrist after his arrest that he did not have an affair with her.
This emerged in court on Wednesday (Mar 13) when Institute of Mental Health psychiatrist Kenneth Koh took the stand.
Dr Koh revealed details as told to him by the accused, 50-year-old Leslie Khoo Kwee Hock. He had interviewed Khoo as part of a routine assessment on his mental state, as done in cases of murder.
According to Dr Koh, Khoo told him that while he had other extra-marital affairs, the victim, 31-year-old Cui Yajie, was not one of them.
Cui was “not his type”, Khoo said, although he would buy her presents and flowers.
Khoo said he befriended Ms Cui after seeing her crying outside his neighbour’s home, saying he helps people “according to scripture”.
“When people come to me for help, I don’t say no,” Khoo said. He also described Ms Cui as a “greedy woman”.
“She had S$20,000 with me for investment and we made some money,” he said.
Ms Cui’s mother, who briefly took the stand on Wednesday, had said in a statement to the authorities that her daughter told her she was in a relationship with a Singaporean man. She also said she did not approve of her daughter’s relationship with Khoo.
