Tampines flat had up to 12 people living in it; Chinese national charged for murder

The tenants who had shared the Tampines flat where a woman was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend on Tuesday night have decided to move out.

The Straits Times reported that they were seen packing up and leaving yesterday evening.

The same report cited one Chinese national, who claimed to be the flat's master tenant, as saying that the attacker and his victim had moved into the flat only on Tuesday night. He told the English daily that he had helped the unit's owners manage sub-leases in the flat.

The five-bedroom flat would also have up to 12 people at a time, although HDB guidelines limit sub-tenants to only nine. And only Singaporean citizens can sub-let their flats.

Meanwhile, Chinese national Zheng Xianghua has been charged for the alleged murder. The 37-year-old suspect was charged at Changi General Hospital on Thursday morning.

The victim, who is believed to be from China, was in her 20s.
