SINGAPORE: Killer-litter woman acquitted

A 50-YEAR-OLD woman who threw furniture, documents and her five cats from her ninth-floor Housing Board flat, has been let off with a warning. Ms Kaye Lea was acquitted by a magistrate’s court yesterday after the prosecution withdrew the charge against her for committing a rash act that endangered people.

She had been charged with throwing a wooden chair, a cardboard box of documents, three paperback books and a box of clothing from her Clementi Avenue 4 flat in October last year. According to newspaper reports then, she also flung out the five cats.

The former legal executive was said to have quit her job because of health problems. She was remanded at the Institute of Mental Health for two weeks for an assessment.

She was subsequently released on bail.
