KOTA BARU: A witness in the trial of an Indonesian maid who allegedly murdered her employer three years ago, denied that the accused was not given food or was asked to clean the kennels of eight dogs at the victim's house.
Lee Chee Keong, 34, the victim's son, said the family had never asked Wilfrida Soik, 23, to do such tasks.
He said his father had also never asked Wilfrida to bathe the dogs as his father was the one who took care of the pets.
"It is not true that my father had asked Wilfrida to bathe the dogs," he said during cross-examination by the defence counsel Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah in the High Court here yesterday.
The accused, who is from East Nusa Tenggara, had been employed for two weeks when she allegedly slashed Yeap Seok Pen, 60, to death with a sharp weapon, between 11am and 12.30pm on Dec 7, 2010 at a house in Kampung Chabang Empat Tok Uban, Pasir Mas.
Another witness, Ong Thian Peng, 33, who was a neighbour of the victim, said he heard a loud argument in the house while he was repairing a car at his workshop next to the residence.
"The radio was also blaring," he said, adding, he was not aware of what the quarrel was about or who were involved.
Ong said he saw the accused walking away after the argument and carrying a bag, from a distance of about 100m.
Justice Datuk Ahmad Zaidi Ibrahim set Jan 19 for the next hearing; deputy public prosecutor Julia Ibrahim appeared for the prosecution. - Bernama
