But even among them Nancy Kissel is outsized, particularly in her performance art. A blonde, she showed up for her first trial in Hong Kong with brown hair, simulating the features of an Asian female. Currently she is serving a life sentence in a Hong Kong prison for what's known as the milkshake murder of her financial player husband Robert. The milkshake sedated him so she could do him in with blows to the head.
Well, she'll be back tomorrow in court to make one more and her last appeal of the conviction verdict. She contends that the jurors of both trials were not appropriately aware of her mental condition when she attacked her husband. She claims she had no intention of killing him. Here is the coverage from Bloomberg.
Kissel should not be optimistic. From reading about other criminal proceedings in Hong Kong, we can conclude the front lines are not sympathetic about supposed mitigating circumstances. For instance, miscreants who embezzle or engage in insider trading to support an addiction are usually not shown mercy.
