Keeah Linda Maureen Sturcke, of Caversham, appeared in Perth Magistrates Court yesterday charged with the murder of 35-year-old man Cong Trung Nguyen.

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.
