A 40-year-old odd-job labourer was charged yesterday for the murder of his 7-year-old daughter 5 years ago and committing incest with his 14-year-old daughter in February this year.

In court yesterday, the man was alleged to have murdered the 7-year-old girl, whose birth was not registered, at Medan Angsana 1, Bandar Baru Air Itam, on 11 November 2004 between 7am and 7pm the next day. Under Section 302 of the Penal Code, no plea was entered and no bail was offered.

The man then was charged with committing incest with the older daughter at a male toilet at Level 6, Kompleks Farlim on 7 February 2009 at 12:30pm.

Under Section 376B of the Penal Code for incest, the man faces with a jail term of between 6 and 20 years and with whipping.

After the man did not stand up and respond to the charges that were being read out to him, deputy public prosecutor Tan Gin Han told the court that the accused be sent for psychiatric evaluation. Noor Aini ordered the man to be observed for a month at Hospital Bahagia in Ulu Kinta.

His cases are fixed for mention on 12 June 2009.
