SINGAPORE: The mother accused of murdering her nine-year-old son in West Coast has been found to be of sound mind.

Rebecca Loh Chui Lai allegedly caused the death of Gabriel Loh, who was found lying unconscious at the foot of a block of flats at West Coast Road on 1 June.

The boy was declared dead shortly after 7pm, less than an hour after he was sent to the National University Hospital (NUH).

It is understood that the boy attended a special needs school.

On Monday, the court heard that Loh was remanded for psychiatric assessment and was found to be of sound mind.

The prosecution said the 31-year-old is fit for court proceedings.

She has been remanded to help with further investigations.

If convicted of murder, Loh faces the death penalty.
