A housewife, Madam Ong Guat Heng, 54, was found dead in a pool of blood at her flat at Block 440, Tampines Street 43, yesterday.

Her father-in-law, Mr Char Chin Fa, 80, was arrested soon after.

A neighbour said Mr Char had told him that he was not on good terms with his daughter-in-law. He would leave home at 6am and return only 12 hours later so they would not cross paths.

Police have classified the case as murder and investigations are ongoing.

Mr Char will be charged in court today.

MH17: KL orders entertainment shutdown on Friday

An order from Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has been sent out to entertainment outlets demanding owners to stop "all entertainment activities" for 24 hours from 7am Friday, as a mark of respect to victims of the MH17 tragedy.

Owners of entertainment outlets in Kuala Lumpur have received an order from Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to cease "all entertainment activities" for 24 hours starting from 7am on Friday (Aug 22), as a mark of respect to victims of the MH17 tragedy, The Star reported.

The notice also said that outlets which did not adhere to the order "would be penalised under the Entertainment Act (WPKL) 1992".

This has upset many of the owners of such outlets.

"We could ask customers to wear black as a mark of respect but it is not right to ask us to stop everything as the livelihood of a lot of people depend on Friday night,'' Jerry Chong of the Backyard Pub in KL told The Star.

Chong also said he and many of his counterparts did not receive the notice.

A spokesman for DBKL said it was following a directive from the Prime Minister's Department.
