A man with a history of schizophrenia who stabbed his former wife to death was yesterday found not guilty of her murder. Lecky Lui Ping-yuen, 45, had earlier admitted manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility at the Court of First Instance. Sentencing was adjourned to March 15 for psychiatric reports. Lui, a schizophrenic for 20 years, stabbed Lau Lai-kin, 39, in Tuen Mun on September 22, 2009.
