The couple who have been suspected of being responsible for the death of 3-year-old Shearwey Ooi Ying Ying have been charged in court yesterday.

Former karaoke lounge manager Ong Chee Leong has been charged with murdering the girl at a Sri Impian Apartment unit in Lengkok Angsana, Bandar Baru Air Itam, between 7:30am and 6:30pm on July 5 2007. The 28-year-old man’s case has been fixed for mention on 14 September 2007, pending the complete post-mortem report.

Ying Ying’s mother, Jess Teh Hooi Wen, aged 28, was charged together with Ong for possessing 1.5gm of cannabis at another apartment occupied by Teh and her family at Solok Angsana, Bandar Baru Air Itam, at 6:30pm on July 17 2007. This case has been fixed for mention on 14 September 2007.

Later, Teh and Ong were charged further at the Balik Pulau magistrate’s court. Teh was charged with lodging a false missing persons report about Ying Ying and with consuming methamphetamine. Ong was charged with consuming tetrahydrocannabinol, amphetamine and methamphetamine.

Teh allegedly lodged the report with Lance Corporal Khairun Nisah Abd Shani at the Bayan Lepas police station at 10:30am on 6 July 2007, the day when Ying Ying went missing. The magistrate set bail at RM2,000 in one surety and fixed hearing for 24 September 2007 for Teh.

Teh was also charged with consuming methamphetamine at the Bayan Lepas police station at 1:30am on 9 July 2007. She claimed trial and was allowed bail at RM3,000 pending mention of the case on 24 September 2007. Ong has been jointly charged for the same offence with Teh, and the magistrate set bail at RM3,000, but did not allow him to post it due to the earlier murder charge.

Teh’s family did not post her bail, as they feared for her safety from the heated crowded in court.
