SINGAPORE - Two Malaysian men were charged in court on Tuesday with the murder of another Malaysian at the multi-storey carpark of Pearls Centre.

Sunder Rangasamy, 27, and Thiagu Muniandy, 23, allegedly killed Mr S. Krisnan Value, 47, between 12.37am and 1.13am on Sunday. They are believed to have committed the offence with two unknown men.

Mr Krisnan's body was found lying on the 11th floor of the building in Eu Tong Sen Street.

The prosecution sought a week's remand for the pair at Central Police Division lock-up.

District Judge Eddy Tham granted permission for the police to take them out for investigation and to trace their accomplices.

They will be back in court next Tuesday.

If convicted, they face the death penalty.
