HK professor arrested for alledged murder
    2018-08-30  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A UNIVERSITY of Hong Kong professor has been arrested on suspicion of killing his wife after police found a body stuffed in a suitcase in his office, the latest grisly murder to transfix the city.

Officers discovered the body of a woman, wearing only her underwear, with an electric wire around her neck, hidden in a suitcase inside a large wooden box in the office of 53-year-old Cheung Kie-chung.

The associate professor from the Department of Mechanical Engineering had reported his wife missing Aug. 20, saying she had not returned home after an argument.

Police said they became suspicious of Cheung after CCTV footage failed to show his wife leaving their home, while Cheung was seen moving a large wooden box out of the premises.

On Tuesday afternoon police searched Cheung’s office, a five-minute drive from the dormitory where he lives with his wife and children.

“There was blood seeping out of the suitcase and it stank,” Superintendent Law Kwok-hoi told reporters Tuesday night.

He said the victim might have been strangled, but the identity and the cause of death still needed to be confirmed by a post-mortem.

Law said Cheung told investigators he had a dispute with his wife on the night she disappeared over toilet hygiene.

Cheung is also the warden of the dormitory where his family lives and a member of the university’s governing council.

Zhang Xiang, the university president, said yesterday he was shocked and saddened at the murder and described it as a tragedy. He said the university would offer support to affected students and colleagues.
