A 23-year-old Indonesian domestic worker has been arrested in connection with the death of the woman, whose body was found floating in the swimming pool of her home in Victoria Park Road on Wednesday morning.

The police confirmed that the case has since been classified as murder but investigations are still ongoing.

The 69-year-old victim is believed to be the employer of the maid. The police were alerted to the case at 8.46am and the victim was later pronounced dead at 9.07am by paramedics who responded to the incident.

This is the second case of murder involving a foreign domestic worker this month. Than Than Win, a 24-year-old maid from Myanmar was charged on Mar 4 with the murder of an 85-year-old Singaporean woman at Springdale Condominium in Hindhede Walk, off Upper Bukit Timah Road.
