    SINGAPORE : The funeral of 12-year-old Linda Lee Yee Lin, who was allegedly murdered by her maid, will be held this Sunday.

    Speaking to reporters at her wake, her father recalled the days before her death.

    Linda was found dead at the foot of their Hougang flat on Wednesday.

    Badminton was Linda's favourite sport.

    This was despite the spinal defect - which she was born with - affecting her legs and speech.

    Her teachers from the special school she used to attend were also at the wake.

    Her father, who only wanted to be known as Mr Lee, said the maid arrived on October 27 and this was her first contract to work in Singapore.

    Mr Lee said: "My daughter did not seem to like her very much. On the second day after the new maid arrived, Linda appeared listless and lost her appetite. "

    Mr Lee said the maid was mainly tasked with caring for Linda, with one-fifth of her time being spent on doing household chores.

    The 24-year-old Indonesian maid, Nurhayati, has been charged with murder.

    She returns to court on December 3.

    Officers from the Indonesian Embassy were also present in court on Friday.

    Nurhayati's lawyer said his client is from Indramayu in East Java.

    If convicted, Nurhayati will face the death penalty.
