M Sutha, 26, the biological mother of the victim, and S Davandakumar, 28, remained silent when the charge was read before Magistrate P Sarulatha. No plea was recorded from both the accused.

They were accused of jointly murdering K Nithish at a house in Jalan Hulubalang, Taman Sentosa here on Dec 24 and face mandatory death sentences if convicted.

Deputy public prosecutor Nur’Ain Madihah Zilkifli did not offer bail to the accused, who were unrepresented in court.

The court set March 23 for remention and submission of forensic and pathology reports.

It was reported on Dec 28 last year that the boy had died from being abused and had been beaten by sticks, belts, and clothes hangers.
