A 21-year-old single mother is in custody facing murder charges.
Keeah Linda Maureen Sturcke, of Caversham, appeared in Perth Magistrates Court yesterday charged with the murder of 35-year-old man Cong Trung Nguyen.
Police on Monday charged Ms Sturcke with Mr Nguyen’s murder, which is believed to have occurred at his former Beechboro home at the weekend.
Ms Sturcke’s supporters were emotional in court – with one woman breaking down down crying and left the courtroom.
On her Facebook page, Ms Sturcke describes herself as a “full time Mummy” who attended Balga Senior High School.
She has a three-year-old son.
No bail application was lodged and Ms Strucke was remanded in custody until her next court appearance on July 30 at Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court.
