Man dubbed ‘cosplay killer’ gets 22 years’ jail, instead of death, upon appeal

PUTRAJAYA: A self-employed youth, who was dubbed “cosplay killer”, today escaped the gallows for the murder of his teenaged girlfriend whose remains he stuffed in a suitcase.

A three-member Court of Appeal bench chaired by Kamardin Hashim, in substituting the charge to culpable homicide not amounting to murder, said there was merit in Poon Wai Hong’s appeal.

“The conviction for murder is not safe. We are reducing it to culpable homicide not amounting to murder under Section 304 (a) of the Penal Code,” said Kamardin who sat with judges Rhodzariah Bujang and Mohamed Zabidin Mohd Diah.

Poon, 29, who was represented by Rajpal Singh, was then sentenced to 22 years in jail from the date of his arrest in 2013.

Cosplay killer met teen victim alone twice

PETALING JAYA (Oct 23, 2013): The second meeting alone with a fellow cosplay fan proved fatal for teenager Ng Yuk Tim who was murdered on Monday.

Sources said the 15-year-old girl had met her killer alone once before since befriending him several years ago.

She had met the 23-year-old suspect, who works as a scaffolder, on other occasions with friends.

On Monday, the suspect fetched Ng from the Kelana Jaya LRT station at 1pm before driving her to his grandmother’s house in Kampung Chempaka nearby.

Sources said Ng and the man met to plan an upcoming cosplay event and were alone in the house as his grandmother was away at the time.

As the duo chatted, the suspect allegedly tried to molest Ng who screamed for help as he persisted. In the struggle, Ng bit his hand.

Angered by this, the man used an exercise dumbbell to strike her until she fell unconscious.

Realising that she was dead, the man then stuffed Ng into a suitcase before disposing it at a secluded spot near Kota Kemuning.

Hours after she failed to return home, the victim’s family began a search for her.

On Tuesday, the man also joined in the search for Ng and posted pleas for her return on social website Facebook where Ng had befriended him.

Selangor Community Policing chief and anti-crime activist Kuan Chee Heng, who had assisted Ng’s family, was suspicious of the suspect’s account of events prior to the victim’s disappearance.

The ex-policeman spoke to the man and asked him about the bite marks on his hand.

The man later confessed to Kuan about what had actually happened and led police to Ng’s body.

“Let me tell you this, the alleged suspect has so many supporters, even his closest friends will not believe he did it,” said a cosplayer who knows him personally.

“He is a nice guy. I’ve spoken to him a few times and I’ve never heard any unsavoury rumours about him,” she added.
