A CPPCC delegate's son who has been charged with murdering his mother was remanded to a mental hospital yesterday to assess whether he is capable of entering a plea. Wang Zhejun, 36, an insurance manager, appeared in Eastern Court accused of killing his mother, Zhan Qiuxia, on Monday in an apartment in Star Street, Wan Chai. Although not questioned, he twice said 'I did not commit any murder' in Putonghua in a low voice from the dock.
