Convicted murderer Nancy Kissel may apply for a transfer to a prison in the United States, according to her lawyer. Mrs Kissel was found guilty of murdering her investment banker husband in a retrial which ended in March.

The 28-day period for Mrs Kissel to lodge an appeal has passed. Her lawyer, Colin Cohen, told Bloomberg that his understanding is that she wishes to make an application to continue her sentence in the United States. Mrs Kissel has already served more than six years of a life sentence in Hong Kong.
