    KAJANG: A 24-year-old woman was charged in the magistrate's court here on Monday with the murder of her two-year-old son Muhammad Aqeel Arfan Abdullah.

    No plea was recorded when the charge was read out to Siti Nurraihan Ahmad before magistrate Nor Afidah Idris.

    She allegedly murdered Muhammad Aqeel Arfan at Teratai Apartment, Hulu Langat here at midnight on Jan 9.

    The former cafe assistant faces the death sentence if found guilty of the crime under Section 302 of the Penal Code.

    Siti Nurraihan pleaded guilty to two charges of voluntarily causing grievous hurt and abusing Muhammad Aqeel Arfan's twin brother at the same address between August 2016 and January 2017.

    She faces a jail term of up to seven years and a fine under Section 325 of the Penal Code.

    Siti Nurraihan however pleaded not guilty when she was charged with abusing her nine-month-old daughter at the same place and date.

    The charge for child abuse was made under Section 31 (1)(a) of the Child Act 2001, and she faces a ten year jail term, a fine or both if found guilty.

    Deputy public prosecutor Megat Mahathir Megat Tharih Afendi prosecuted while Siti Nurraihan was unrepresented.

    The court set March 17 for mention of all four cases. - Bernama
