Bound together: The suspects being taken to court in Kajang.

KAJANG: Four men have been charged in a magistrate’s court here with the murder of a businessman and his female companion at Taman Segar Perdana here last month.

Self-employed Ismail Ahmad, 58, taxi driver S. Dheepak, 27, Internet cafe staff S. Sandrasagran, 37, and security guard V. Rajendra Prakash, 33, were jointly charged before Magistrate Abdul Jalil Salam Muhamad yesterday.

Their family members were present in court when the charge was read out to them.

The four were charged with murdering Leong Kian Sheong, 37, at a house in Jalan SP 6/3, Taman Segar Perdana, Batu 9, Cheras, between 6.10am and 6.45am on Sept 13.

They were also accused of murdering Vivien Wong, 20, at the same time and place.

The men, who were unrepresented, were accused under Section 302 of the Penal Code which carries a mandatory death sentence.

No plea was recorded.

On Sept 14, the bodies of Leong and Wong were found in a pool of blood in a room on the ground floor of the house.

The couple, with slash wounds on several parts of their body, was believed to have been killed a day before but their death was only discovered after a friend visited the house at about 10pm.

The friend had dropped by at the house after efforts to contact them were unsuccessful.

The next mention has been fixed for Dec 4 pending chemical and forensic reports.
