Woman pleads guilty to ill-treating young nephews

Published on Aug 11, 2012 6:00 AM

A dishwasher tied up the hands and legs of her two young nephews in the kitchen of her Teck Whye flat.

She left them food and asked a male friend then staying at the flat to feed them while she was at work.

On July 3, 2011, two days after tying them up, the 48-year-old realised that the younger boy was motionless.

He was pronounced dead an hour later, a district court heard on Friday.
