SINGAPORE - A 22-year-old man, who was earlier charged with murdering his mother, was on Monday (Nov 18) handed a second murder charge over the death of his grandmother.

Gabriel Lien Goh now faces two murder charges over the deaths of his mother Lee Soh Mui, 56, and his 90-year-old grandmother.

Ms Lee was found dead at a unit on the seventh floor of 7A Commonwealth Avenue, while the older woman was found in the next-door unit, where she was believed to have died from her injuries.

The case was one of two murder cases that took place over the Deepavali weekend in October.
