Abby Choi’s former mother-in-law behind bars as Hong Kong court denies bail bid

Abby Choi’s former mother-in-law behind bars as Hong Kong court denies bail bid

Judge denies Jenny Li’s second bail application after hearing counsel’s submission.

The ex-mother-in-law of slain model Abby Choi, charged with perverting the course of justice in relation to the murder, will remain behind bars after failing in her second attempt to secure bail.

Jenny Li Sui-heung, 63, returned to court on Tuesday after her failed bail application last week. The magistrate dismissed her second attempt after hearing the counsel’s submission.

Li waived the right to review bail and was remanded in custody.

Abby Choi’s former mother-in-law Jenny Li Sui-heung and her former brother-in-law Anthony Kwong.


Choi’s former husband, Alex Kwong Kong-chi, 28, his father, Kwong Kau, 65, and elder brother Anthony Kwong Kong-kit, 32, are behind bars on a joint murder charge for allegedly killing the model in a Tai Po village house.

The court heard earlier that the preliminary investigation confirmed the blood found in Anthony Kwong’s car and the human skull and legs found in the village house belong to the deceased.

The four have been remanded since February and will appear in court for a third pretrial hearing on July 31.

Police also arrested a yacht rental agent, Lam Shun, 42, and jobless Irene Pun Hau-yin, 29, who allegedly attempted to help Alex Kwong escape by speedboat to Macau. They were released on HK$50,000 (US$6,371) bail each.

The prosecution confirmed in the last hearing that all those alleged to have been connected with the murder had been arrested.
