GEORGE TOWN: Two men were charged in a magistrate’s court here with the murder of a 33-year-old man.

Mohamad Razman Saini Anuar, 24, and Mohd Yusri Mohamed, 38, were jointly accused of murdering Lim Kok Boon by hitting him with their helmets.

The two allegedly committed the crime at the rubbish disposal area on the 14th floor of a block of flats in Kampung Melayu, Air Itam, here at 10.10pm on Sept 22.

They were charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which carries the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.

Mohamad Razman and Mohd Yusri, who were clad in blue T-shirts and jeans, nodded their heads to show that they understood the charge read out by the court interpreter.

No plea was recorded and no bail was offered.

Magistrate Mohamad Amin Shahul Hamid fixed Dec 7 for mention pending the chemistry and post-mortem reports.

DPP Mohamad Shafiq Mohd Sazalli prosecuted while the accused were unrepresented.

Earlier, the accused shielded their faces from press photographers as they were brought to the courthouse.

It was reported that Lim, a wallpaper shop worker, died on Sept 25 at the Penang Hospital three days after the attack.

It was reported that two men were packing drugs in the 14th floor rubbish room when Lim walked in on them.

They quickly threw away the drugs as they thought Lim was a policeman.

They started to attack Lim when they saw that he was someone they knew.
