ANGRY at her maid for cutting broccoli wrongly, a housewife slammed a kettle against the Myanmar woman's arm, splashing warm water on her face. The maid told her agent, who reported it to the police the next day.
Investigations then revealed 14 other occasions when Peck Choon Khim, 41, ill-treated Ms Moe Thandar Lin. Peck pleaded guilty on Wednesday and will be sentenced on Jan 14.
A district court heard that Peck had been abusing Ms Lin, 24, since Nov 15 last year. On that evening, she hit the maid's palm with a spatula for taking too long to find it.
