SINGAPORE - The sister of a Vietnamese national who was found dead last week in an Ang Mo Kio flat is expected to arrive in Singapore from Vietnam on Tuesday to collect her body.

Ms Dinah, who works in Malaysia, told Chinese evening daily Lianhe Wanbao that she would be going back to Vietnam to bring their mother here.

"We wanted to go to Singapore sooner, but we can only arrive on Tuesday," she said.

Ms Tran Cam Ny, 32, was allegedly murdered in a flat at Block 406, Ang Mo Kio Ave 10 last Thursday. Lim Hou Peng Jackson, 40, was arrested the same day and charged with the murder two days later.

Ms Tran was said to have made a living here singing and dancing in a club.

Following his charge, Lim was remanded for psychiatric evaluation and is expected to appear in court again in December. If convicted, he faces the death penalty.
