Woodlands double-murder trial: Property agent spent a week in flat after strangling pregnant wife and daughter

Woodlands double-murder trial: Property agent spent a week in flat after strangling pregnant wife and daughter.

SINGAPORE - One week before Chinese New Year in 2017, debt-ridden property agent Teo Ghim Heng strangled his wife, who was six months pregnant, and their four-year-old daughter.

He slept on the same bed as the bodies for one week in his Woodlands flat, with the air-conditioner turned on to delay the decomposition process.

He searched the Internet for ways to commit suicide, leaving the flat only to buy food and air freshener.
