SEPANG  –  Two men were charged in a Magistrate’s Court here Wednesday with the murder of a computer engineer in his home earlier this month.

Wireman Mohd Naim Ramli, 24, and unemployed Abdul Hazim Fazala Rahman, 20, were accused of murdering Loh Min Lee at his home on Jalan Putra Perdana, Puchong at 4.15am on Dec 7.

According to the Star, they were charged before Sessions court Judge Ahmad Fairuz Mohd Fuzi, although no plea was recorded.

The two face the gallows if found guilty for murder, under Section 302 of the Penal Code.

Mohd Naim was also charged with two counts of breaking and entering several homes in the Puchong area.

On the first charge, Mohd Naim was accused of breaking into the home of Simounian Kordolya and stealing a Fossil brand watch worth RM1,500.

The alleged offence occurred at Simounian’s residence at Ametis Terreces, Bukit Puchong 2, Putra Perdana at 2am on Sept 20.

Mohd Naim was also alleged to have broken into the home of Ab Mumin Ab Ghani, 57, at Bandar Bukit Puchong 2 to steal his MyKad and driving licence, a Nissan Sylphy, and several cameras and cash, worth a total of RM70,000, at 5.30am on Nov 23.

The offences under Section 457 of the PC are punishable by up to five years prison and a fine, if convicted.

Mohd Naim and Abdul Hazim were unrepresented, while the prosecution was lead by deputy public prosecutor Aqeeb Lizalman Nordin Zamery.

No bail was offered as the two had been charged for murder.

The court fixed Feb 5 for next mention to allow the accused to elect representation.

It was previously reported that Loh’s body was found by his mother lying on a blood-soaked mattress, in a room on the second floor of the house on Dec 13.

Loh, who worked as a computer engineer in Cyberjaya, is believed to have died after suffering multiple blows to the head.
