A 57-year-old man was arrested by police on Wednesday on suspicion of killing his wife and trying to pass off her death as a suicide case. According to Apple Daily the husband who is believed to be unemployed called the police at around 2:55 pm and informed them that his wife, 40, attempted to commit suicide at home. After arriving at their flat in Nam Lok House building in Nam Shan Estate a public housing estate in Shek Kip Mei, police and paramedics saw a woman lying unconscious on the floor. Paramedics rushed her to Caritas Medical Centre where she was pronounced dead. While the husband claimed that his wife killed herself the police were skeptical of his claims as they noticed injuries on the woman’s back and also didn’t find a knife at the scene. A search in the building led the officers to uncover a fruit knife in a rubbish bin near a staircase on the same floor where the couple’s flat was located. An examination led to the conclusion that it may have been the weapon that was used to inflict grievous injuries to the woman. The husband was arrested on suspicion of killing his wife. Man Chi-yeung, chief inspector (crime) of the police’s Sham Shui Po district unit said initial investigation suggested that a relationship dispute was likely to be what led to the crime.
The case has been listed as murder and the was husband placed under custody. Post-mortem examinations will be conducted on the victim to ascertain the cause of her death. A source told Apple Daily that the husband had suspected his wife, who was from Huizhou in Guangdong province, had an extra-marital affair. The pair was heard quarrelling multiple times in the recent past, according to the source.
Following Wednesday’s death and the arrest, the couple’s two sons, 16, and 10, will, for the time being, be put under the care of the Social Welfare Department. The department will provide the family with appropriate support and assistance with respect to their welfare needs. The case is being followed up by the crime squad of Sham Shui Po district.

Jackie Chan’s 19-year-old daughter Etta Ng Chok Lam confirmed on Monday morning that she had married her 31-year-old Canadian internet celebrity girlfriend Andi Autumn.
Ng posted a photo on her Instagram account of the happy couple, both wearing white dresses and holding a marriage certificate dated November 8, 2018. Under the photo, Ng wrote, “united by love and law, on our wedding day”. “We have all been hurt but if you can dream of love, you can find it. Love is kind, it does not judge. Love is both strength and weakness. Love can make [a] change. Love wins!” she wrote.
Many internet users expressed their blessings on Instagram as well as Weibo, China’s Twitter-like service. Ng is Jackie Chan’s daughter with actress and former beauty queen Elaine Ng Yi Lei, who announced her pregnancy and disclosed her affair with Chan in 1999, although the pair did not marry. Ng and Autumn started dating in 2017 and moved to Canada in October that year, but their relationship failed to win support from her parents.
In April, Ng asked for help from the public in a YouTube video that went viral. In the video Ng said she and Autumn were on the verge of homelessness, and blamed her “homophobic” parents. At that time, Ng’s claims were denounced by her mother Elaine Ng. “I feel that if they have no money, they should go find work. They shouldn’t film a clip telling others they are broke and who Etta’s father is. People all over the world work hard and don’t rely on someone else’s fame to get money,” Elaine Ng was quoted as saying by website Coconuts.
Elderly couple found dead in Hong Kong flat ‘with burnt charcoal in living room’, sparking suicide investigation
An elderly couple were found dead in a Hong Kong public housing flat on Monday, sparking a police investigation into whether a suicide pact was involved.
Emergency crews rushed to Tin Yan Estate, off Tin Shui Road in Tin Shui Wai, at 1.41pm after receiving a report from a security guard. The guard was alerted by the daughter of the deceased pair, who visited the 11th-floor flat of Yan Lok House at the estate at 1.30pm, but found no one answered the door.
“Firefighters broke into the flat and found the bodies of a man and a woman inside,” a police spokeswoman said. The man was 75 and his wife was 87. They had five grown children who had moved out of the flat, according to a police source.
The man had difficulty walking and was wheelchair-bound, while his wife had suffered from depression for about a decade. “The man was found unconscious in a wheelchair in the kitchen and his wife was found in the bedroom. They were certified dead at the scene,” the source said. He said officers found a tray of burnt charcoal in the living room but no suicide note. The flat was locked from the inside and police were investigating if it was a suicide pact. The pair were last seen at home when their son visited them around midday on Sunday.

Former TVB actress Yammie Lam Kit-ying was found dead in her flat in Stanley, Hong Kong, in the early hours of Saturday .
A senior police source confirmed the deceased woman was 55-year-old Lam and that the body had no apparent wounds but was decomposing by the time officers discovered it in the toilet of the flat in Leung Ma House at Ma Hang Estate.
Known for her beauty, Lam rose to fame in the late 1980s, after appearing in TV series such as Looking Back in Anger and The Greed of Man, which starred Adam Cheng Siu-chow and Sean Lau Ching-wan. Her career would expand into films and she won the hearts of audiences with her turn as Spider Woman in the two-part 1995 fantasy A Chinese Odyssey, starring comedian Stephen Chow Sing-chi.
On Saturday, police said an initial investigation found no suspicious cause behind her death. The source told the Post a friend of Lam’s, surnamed Lui, visited her on Friday night and noticed a foul smell from the flat. When no one answered the door, the friend called police at 12.28am. “The gate was closed while a wooden door was left unlocked,” the source said. “Lam was last seen by her neighbour on Wednesday. We also found her calls record on that day, which means she died within the past two days,” the police insider said, adding no drugs were found in her flat. Police were trying to contact Lam’s family.
The late actress had a showbiz life fraught with ups and downs. She began her career in Hong Kong television after graduating from TVB’s acting course in 1983 at the age of 20. Other names in her batch included Carina Lau Ka-ling and Sandra Ng Kwan-yue. Lam was close to both women, and the trio, along with six other popular actresses, were known as the “dragon girls”. In her early career, she was one of the hosts on 430 Space Shuttle, a famous children’s show that aired on TVB Jade for seven years. She was dropped from casting lists on two occasions over rows with management – once in 1984 when she was blacklisted for six months after she requested to shorten her five-year contract with TVB to two, and in 1986 when it was reported she often arrived late on set. The disciplinary actions prompted her to leave the station when her contract ended in 1987.
Lam’s life spiralled downward after a car accident in 1998 injured her hands and neck, greatly affecting her health. She was later reported to be suffering from mental health issues and seeking treatment. She was no longer able to work and support herself financially because of the illness. In 2006, she was declared bankrupt and has since lived on financial aid. Lam made headlines again in 2013 after she revealed in an exclusive interview that she was raped by two leading players in the local entertainment industry decades ago. The names of the alleged attackers were not disclosed, and Lam said she never went to police because she wanted to avoid trouble.
