Two Malaysians, who went on a violent robbery spree in the Kallang area in 2010, were convicted of murder.
Micheal Garing, 25, and Tony Imba, 34, from Sarawak, were found guilty by the High Court of murdering 41-year-old Shanmuganathan Dillidurai, a construction worker from India.
The case was adjourned to a later date for both sides to make submissions on whether the duo should be given the death penalty or life imprisonment.
The prosecution indicated yesterday it would be pushing for the death penalty.
Micheal and Tony were among a group of four men who carried out four violent robberies from the late night of May 29 to the early hours of May 30.
One alleged accomplice is at large. The other has been sentenced to 33 years’ jail and 24 strokes of the cane after pleading guilty to armed robbery with grievous hurt.
Apart from Shanmuganathan, the three other victims – two workers from India and a Singaporean – were seriously injured. — The Straits Times/ Asia News Network
