Hong Kong socialite Abby Choi’s ex-husband, along with his father and older brother, have been charged with murder on Feb. 27, according to HK01.
She was found brutally murdered and dismembered on Feb. 24. Her torso and arms have not been found by police.
Choi’s ex-husband, Alex Kwong, 28, along with his brother, Anthony Kwong, 31, and father, Kwong Kau, 65, face life imprisonment if found guilty of murder.
Kau’s wife, 63-year-old Jenny Li, was charged with obstruction of justice.
The court adjourned the hearing to May 8.
Kau’s mistress arrested
According to HK01, police have made a fifth arrest over the murder: a 47-year-old whom they believe rented the home that Choi was murdered in, along with another flat which Alex hid in.
She is reported to be Kau’s mistress.
Known to the media by her nickname Yung Yung, she reportedly worked at a massage parlour in the Prince Edward district, but was not at work when police visited her workplace.
She was arrested on Feb. 26 on the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui, and was escorted to her home for police to search it.
Police continue search for Choi’s remains
The three Kwongs and Li have been said to be “uncooperative” with police investigations, according to HK01. As a result, police have been unable to get information about where the rest of Choi’s remains are.
As of Feb. 26, her torso and arms have not been located.
After parts of her body were discovered at what is believed to be the murder scene on Feb. 24, police were in a race against time to locate the missing body parts as they suspected that the suspects had attempted to flush some parts down the toilet.
They did not find anything on the day, and despite their efforts of expanding the search radius, they have not been able to find any body parts in the drainage system.
The superintendent of the Kowloon West Regional Headquarters, Alan Chung, told Hong Kong media on Feb. 27 that he will not give up on any leads, and hopes to find as many parts of Choi’s body as possible.
HK01 understands that police believe that some body parts may have been discarded, and are expected to start searching landfills on Feb. 28.
