Man jailed again for attacking mother

Posted by Zwe on May 14, 2010


A YOUNG man with a history of assaulting his mother was yesterday sentenced to 30 months’ jail and six strokes of the cane.

He had slashed her on her head and hand with a 19cm knife in March, after arguing with her over washing his cup in their Jurong East Street 21 home.

So it will be back to prison for Koh Kim Swee, 23, who had just earned his freedom last September following a 15-month jail term – also for attacking Madam Lee Yoke Kuen, 49.

That time two years ago, he hit her with hammer, giving her a bruise at the back of her head, for asking him to turn off the fan.

When Community Court judge May Mesenas asked Koh on Tuesday why he committed the offense, he replied that it was “totally inexplicable”, and that he had wanted to kill her.

The court heard that he had been diagnosed with an anti-social personality disorder, and had said that he felt “numb” when asked whether he felt remorseful.
Koh is married to an Indonesian who does not live with him.
