Four days after an elderly woman was found dead at home, her Indonesian maid was charged with murder yesterday.

But the family of Madam Aandi Abdul Rahman Rasheeda Begam, 77, appeared shocked to hear from reporters that their maid had been charged.

Yati, 26, allegedly murdered Madam Aandi last Tuesday, some time between shortly after midnight and 11.33am, at the victim's flat in Serangoon North Avenue 4.

The Sunday Times understands that the funeral was held and the family did not suspect foul play. The case was established as murder after police investigations and the results of a postmortem.
