In May last year, Cher's boyfriend, 32-year-old music composer Wee Jun Xiang, was found dead inside a car in a multi-story parking lot. Medics at the scene said Wee died from unnatural causes. Although at first, Wee's family and media believed he died from a possible heart attack, a local tabloid reported.

After months of investigation, Cher was arrested by local police in early December and was formally charged in court for her involvement with Wee's death. At the time, Cher was facing life imprisonment for the charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

But this week in court, more information was shed on Cher's involvement with Wee's death. Today reported that new charge sheets show that Cher allegedly turned the valve on the nitrogen gas tank used to kill Wee about "four to five times." The report also said that Cher positioned the gas tank so that the gas would pour into a bag.

  Japan's Princess Mako marries commoner, loses royal status TOKYO (AP) — Japanese Princess Mako married a commoner and lost her royal status Tuesday in a union that has split public opinion and was delayed more than three years by a financial dispute involving her new mother-in-law. The marriage document for Mako and Kei Komuro was submitted by a palace official Tuesday morning and is now official, the Imperial Household Agency said. They will make statements at a press conference in the afternoon but will not take questions because Mako showed fear and unease at the questions that would be posed, the agency said.

Cher also reportedly asked a man to dispose of the gas tank and the bag used to hold the gas which allegedly killed Wee. She was also charged for allegedly telling police that Wee was experiencing chest pain for about two weeks leading up to his death but admitted that this was a lie, Today reported.

She also allegedly told police she believed Wee died from a heart attack. Cher successfully paid her $100,000 bail and is due in court again in November for a pretrial conference.

If found guilty of abetting suicide when the person was a minor or incapable of understanding their actions, an abetter could face the death penalty or life in prison, or 20 years in prison if the person succeeds the attempt.
