GEORGE TOWN: A 45-year-old man cried at the High Court today after he was acquitted of murdering a man two years ago.
Judge Datuk Zamani A. Rahim, in freeing Beh Kuang Meng without calling for his defence, ruled that there was insufficient evidence to establish a prima facie case against him.
Beh was charged with murdering Lim Gim Beng, then 52, with a brick, at the construction site of a new overhead bridge at the end of Jalan Paboi, Bukit Tambun, Simpang Ampat, about 2am on April 16, 2010.
According to the facts, a white Proton Iswara had veered off the road and landed at the construction site. A lifeless body, later identified as Lim, was found next to the car with his face upwards and bloodied.
Policemen who rushed to the scene found blood splattered on the door and a broken number plate at the site.
Beh was represented by R.S.N. Rayer. Deputy Public Prosecutor Shakila Banu Sheik Allaudeen prosecuted.
