JOHOR BARU: The case involving a jobless man charged with murdering a woman whose body was hacked and dumped at three different locations in April, will be re-mentioned on Aug 22 as the Chemistry Department report is not ready. 

Magistrate Rashidah Roslee made the ruling after prosecuting officer Chief Insp Hasbullah Mohd Noor informed the court that he had yet to receive the report. 

Rashidah also granted an application by counsel Gobind Singh Deo to send his client, Loo Ting Meng to Hospital Permai here, for observation. 

Loo, 30, from Hutan Melintang, Perak, was charged with killing Choke Swee Foong, 30, with a cleaver in a room at Hotel Meyah in Taman Maju Jaya on April 29. 

He was first charged on May 12. No plea was recorded. 

Loo was charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code which carries a mandatory death sentence, if found guilty. 

Loo was arrested after the mutilated remains of Choke, a divorcee with an 18-month-old child, were recovered in Taman Johor Jaya and Taman Maju Jaya here.
