A 34-year-old Indian-origin man has been charged with the murder of a woman in Singapore, who was found dead in a rented apartment, according to a media report.
M Krishnan allegedly killed 40-year-old Mallika Begum Rahamansa Abdul Rahman in an apartment in northern housing estate of Woodlands on Wednesday night, according to a court document.
The police said the two knew each other and were allegedly in a relationship. Both had frequent quarrels, an online portal reported.
When the police arrived at the murder scene after receiving a call at 1:34 am on Thursday, Ms Mallika was found lying motionless inside a room. Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene, the report said.
Though the accused fled the scene, the police managed to apprehend him a few hours later.
Krishnan, who faces death penalty if convicted of murder, was not represented by a lawyer in court today. Bail was granted and he was remanded at the Central Police Division.
The next hearing for the case has been set for January 25.
