Man convicted of killing mum in Bukit Batok flat
A man was found guilty of culpable homicide not amounting to murder for fatally stabbing his mother in the neck on May 27, 2012.
Sujay Solomon Sutherson, 34, was convicted on Tuesday morning (Aug 11) in the High Court.
He had stabbed his mother, Madam Mallika Jesudasan, in their Bukit Batok East flat using three knives and had tried to decapitate her.
When he failed to burn her body, Sujay, who has a history of mental illness, hid her under his bed.
He claimed it was done in self defence.
But Judicial Commissioner Hoo Sheau Peng said she could not accept Sujay's defence that his mother had tried to harm him and molest him that night.
In his defence, Sujay had also alleged his mother had previously stabbed him in the stomach.
He will be sentenced in September.
