Mother and Boy friend murdered 4 years old J.Pavitra
Parimala, who is seven months pregnant and unemployed, and Kupertalan, a funeral parlor worker and part-time security guard, were unrepresented.
Magistrate Shamshol Azwa Martadza fixed Nov 1 for mention pending a post-mortem report.
She ordered Kupertalan to be sent to Taiping prison and Parimala to Tapah prison.
Earlier, Kupertalan, from Lunas, Kedah, requested to be sent to Alor Star prison to allow his family to visit him. It was however rejected by the magistrate.
It was reported that Pavitra died at the Klinik 1Malaysia in Kampung Tawas following serious injuries.
Her death was reported by the clinic’s staff who had suspected something amiss and the girl’s body was taken to the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital for a post-mortem.
Investigations showed the girl died from internal bleeding, consistent with physical abuse.
