Hearing on cost of Kissel case


The legal department and lawyers for convicted murderer Nancy Kissel have opened a hearing before Registrar Simon Kwang to decide how much of her legal costs the government should reimburse. Mrs Kissel has twice been convicted of murdering her husband Robert in 2003.

A jury found her guilty in 2005, and the Court of Appeal upheld the verdict. But the Court of Final Appeal subsequently set aside her conviction and ordered a retrial.

She is now seeking repayment for expenses incurred during those three proceedings. Her second trial ended on March 25 with her again being sentenced to life imprisonment. Costs for that hearing are not being discussed.
