What’s Wrong With The World? Son Asks After Mother Mowed Down By Neighbour
GEORGE TOWN, Nov 21 – Retiree Yeoh Beng Kooi, 57, never would have thought his birthday yesterday would be the last one he would celebrate with his wife of 25 years. Nor did it occur to him she would leave him forever a day after he turned 57. Too distraught to speak to reporters when met at the Penang Hospital mortuary after his wife was allegedly killed by his neighbour, Yeoh’s son, Phing Koon, opened up to the press.
When met, Phing Koon said he could not believe his mother’s life would end in such a tragic manner and over such a petty matter. Earlier today, it was reported that Lee Seok Pheng, 47 was allegedly killed by a 53-year-old mechanic, who mowed her down with a car following what was believed to be a dispute over his throwing of garbage near the victim’s apartment unit. “I just can’t believe that someone could actually do something like this over a trivial matter. “What’s wrong with the world?” said the visibly upset salesman, who lives in Kulim, Kedah.
The suspect had allegedly tried to ram his Proton Wira into the couple before hitting Lee, who was then dragged under his car. In the 12.30am incident, the suspect attempted to flee the scene, but was apprehended by passers-by before being handed over to the police. Northeast District police chief Assistant Commissioner Mior Farid Alathrash Wahid said the suspect had since been arrested. “He is being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder and is remanded for six days to facilitate investigations,” he said when contacted.
