FIRST the wife was charged with burning the maid with a hot metal spoon and abusing her on two other occasions.

On Thursday, Tang Leng Khuen, 43, was brought to court on a charge of hitting Indonesian maid Lilis Sriyatun on the back with a hanger and kicking her in the stomach.

The alleged offence took place at the couple’s Sengkang flat in April 2009.

His wife, Soh Meiyun, 31, who is self-employed, was charged last month with using the heated substance to hurt the 25-year-old domestic worker on her left arm in May that year.

She also allegedly used a bamboo pole and hanger to hit her on the face and pinched her body, and on another occasion, scratched her body and hand with a needle. Her case is pending.

Tang, a software engineer, was represented by a lawyer, who asked for the case to be adjourned. He will appear in court on April 7.
