Another of Tong Hock's sons, Kelvin Ling Chei You, eight, is in intensive care at Sibu Hospital.  

Shafie said police have obtained a court order to remand a woman for a week beginning today to help in their investigation.  

Tong Hock's new wife, Li Xiao Lan, 28, a Chinese national, fled through a bedroom window to a neighbour's house during the attack.

Shafie said Kelvin Ling was to have been transferred to Kuching Hospital today but foul weather in Simunjan has delayed the helicopter transport.
