Boh Soon Ho, 51, was sentenced to life imprisonment for strangling year-old nurse Zhang Huaxiang with a bath towel in This was after she rejected his advances for sex and told him it was normal for her to be intimate with her ex-boyfriend. After he killed her, he stripped her, took nude photos of her and tried to have sex with her corpse. While he accepted that Boh had lost self-control, he did not find that the provocation was grave enough to warrant a defence. The prosecutors had submitted for life imprisonment, while defence lawyers Eugene Thuraisingam, Chooi Jing Yen and Hamza Malik argued that there was no premeditation, and that Boh was deeply remorseful. He had been arrested in Malaysia after fleeing there, leaving the body in the room to be later discovered by his landlord. The defence did not challenge most of the prosecution's version of events leading up to the murder and the murder itself, contesting only the reliability of Boh's admission that he spent about five minutes contemplating killing the victim. After killing the victim, Boh "still wanted to satiate his sexual desires" for her, telling herself that since she had died and he had never seen her naked before, he should undress her, said prosecutors. He removed the woman's clothes and took photos of her body, before licking it.
