Burglars murdered an 82-year-old woman and injured another woman she shared a home with in Yuen Long. Police said the injured woman, a 59-year-old surnamed Chan, returned to her home in a village hut in Tai Kei Leng at 11.30pm on Wednesday and found two men inside. They assaulted Ms Chan with a knife, a screwdriver and a pair of scissors before tying her up and ransacking the flat. She freed herself at 1.40am and called police who found the other victim, surnamed Law, unconscious, bound and gagged in another room. The two women, whose relationship was unknown, were taken to Pok Oi Hospital where Law was declared dead. Ms Chan was treated for injuries to her neck and shoulders. Police are assessing how much property was stolen.
