Dear A.S.S. Editor
A 69 year old retired aircraft technician, has pleaded guilty to killing his wife of 36 years. Kong Peng Yee had developed delusional beliefs that his family was trying to harm him, so he took preemptive measures by killing his wife.
He slashed Madam Wong Chik Yeok’s head, first using a knife and then a chopper, at their Sengkang home on the afternoon of March 13 last year. Both Kong and Madam Wong lived with their younger daughter Yanni, 27, in Compassvale Crescent. Their older daughter Annie, 36, lived elsewhere. Experts believed that Kong’s psychotic state could have its origins in severe depression following mild physical impairments after his eye surgery.
