A 40-year-old cook appeared in Kwun Tong Court yesterday after he was charged on Friday with the murder in Tuen Mun of a woman who was stabbed with a broken umbrella.

Law Kam-fuk, 40, from Shan King Estate, Tuen Mun, was charged with one count of murder when he appeared before Magistrate Amanda Jane Woodcock.

He was accused of murdering Tam Yiu-so, 35, outside San Hui pavilion, off Castle Peak Road.

Law appeared calm in the dock when the charge was read to him. No plea was taken.

Ms Woodcock ordered that Law be kept in police custody and adjourned the case to Tuen Mun Court on Thursday to allow time for police to conduct an identification parade.
