A judge ordered that a mentally ill woman be placed on probation for three years after she killed her wheelchair-bound mother by burning charcoal. Mr Justice Peter Line, of the Court of First Instance, made the order against Chu Wai-yin, 40, who had admitted one count of manslaughter. The court heard Chu had a history of depression and bipolar affective disorder. She admitted having killed her mother, Lee Lai-wah, 72, on February 19 last year at their Wong Tai Sin home.
