"Suitcase murder": Businessman's murder charge dropped
Businessman Teo Boon Leng no longer faces a capital charge of murdering a man whose decomposed body was found in a trolley bag floating in the sea off Sentosa.
The prosecution on Wednesday applied for a discharge not amounting to an acquittal for the 45-year-old. But his lawyers wanted a full acquittal.
Teo had been in remand since April last year for the alleged murder of Mr Wong Teck Siong, 28, at the upmarket Caribbean At Keppel Bay condominium in Keppel Bay Drive between April 1 and 16 last year.
Mr Wong's body - which was clothed but carried no identification papers - was discovered on April 16 last year after two foreign construction workers spotted the trolley bag floating in the water off a building site at Resorts World Sentosa integrated resort.
