Woman jailed nine months for maid abuse

THE wife of the man who starved and beat their maid to death appeared in court on Wednesday with hair and nails cut short, prepared to go to jail. 

But moments after Tan Chai Hong, 30, was sentenced to nine months’ jail for her part in the torture of Muawanatul Chasanah, Tan’s lawyer told the court she was appealing against the sentence. She is now out on S$5,000 (RM10,500) bail.
