Brisbane, Sept 21 (ANI): The probe into the death of an Indian origin woman, Neelma Singh and her siblings has taken a new turn after the Brisbane Magistrates Court heard that an acrimonious message was sent by Singh to a man the night before they were killed in their Brisbane home.

Neelma, 24, and siblings Kunal, 18, and Sidhi, 12, were found dead in their Bridgeman Downs home, on Brisbane's northside, in April 2003.

Max Sica, Neelma's former boyfriend, is facing three charges of murder over the deaths. His committal hearing resumed in the court yesterday after a 10-week adjournment.

According to, Sica's defence counsel, Sam Di Carlo, told the court Neelma sent an angry SMS message to a man by the name of Lala, saying: "Before you accuse me, get your story straight. You have no right to say what you did".

"Then there is a message from him (Lala) the following morning, at 9.55 am, which states: 'Can you meet me at the park behind my old house at 10.30 am'," Di Carlo added.

Meanwhile, investigator Detective Senior Sergeant Andrew Massingham said that after an enquiry, it was found that Lala was at a wedding in bayside Sandgate the night before the Singh's were found dead.

On being asked by Di Carlo about where Lala was when he replied to Singh's message, Massingham said further inquiries would have been made.

"That inquiry (which mobile tower the message came from) would have been made by the intel (intelligence) office at this time. I don't have any recollection as to which tower it may or may not have bounced off," he added. (ANI)
