Choi’s former spouse, Alex Kwong Kong-chi, 28, his father, Kwong Kau, 65, and elder brother Anthony Kwong Kong-kit, 32, are behind bars on a joint murder charge for allegedly killing the model in the Tai Po village house.
Kwong’s mother, Jenny Li Sui-heung, 63, who has been charged with perverting the course of justice, has also been denied bail.
Two others who were granted temporary release are accused of helping with Kwong’s attempted escape to Macau with intent to impede his arrest.
The six suspects appeared in Kowloon City Court on Monday (May 8) when prosecutors explained investigators’ preliminary findings. The prosecution confirmed that all suspects connected with the murder had been arrested.
Initial DNA examinations concluded that bloodstains inside Anthony Kwong’s car, as well as the skull and legs found in the village house, belonged to Choi, the court heard.
A jacket found in the flat was believed to have been worn by Li, whose DNA was found on it.
Prosecutors applied for a second adjournment as police required extra time to inspect more than 30 items seized from the premises, including electric saws, knives, hammers and kitchenware.
The accused will appear before the same court for a third pretrial hearing on Jul 31.
