A toy salesman accused of kidnapping and murdering his girlfriend's four-year-old son because he was in the way of their relationship broke down in tears yesterday as he said he still had feelings for another woman. Lam Shing-tak, 31, told the Court of First Instance he did not believe his relationship with the boy's mother, Ng Yu-ping, was long-term because of his feelings for a former girlfriend. 'At that time I still had some feeling towards this ex-girlfriend, and at the time after I broke up with this ex-girlfriend we still got along,' Lam said. 'I still missed my ex-girlfriend very much.' Lam has pleaded not guilty to the kidnapping and murder of Law Shiu-wai on June 30, 1999, at the Wong Chuk Hang Estate, Aberdeen. Three days after the boy was abducted outside a cafe, a fisherman discovered his body in Gin Drinkers Bay, near Tsing Yi. The kindergarten pupil had been gagged, his legs tied with adhesive tape and his thumbs locked together with plastic straps. The cause of death could not be established due to severe decomposition. The court has heard a search of Lam's flat had uncovered plastic straps and a surgical glove which had traces of DNA that could have come from the boy. But Lam told the jury yesterday he had used gloves when handling toys so they would not become dirty. He said that on the morning of the abduction he drove around Wong Chuk Hang looking for a company that acted as an agent for soft toys and gifts. He said he met Ms Ng for lunch before midday. He returned to Wong Chuk Hang around 4pm, stopping at a shop for some noodles between 4.30pm and 5pm. The boy was abducted around 5pm. Lam said he met Ms Ng later that night. The prosecution has claimed Lam was obsessed with Ms Ng and jealous of Shiu-wai, to the point that he believed the boy stood in the way of the relationship. The trial before Mr Justice Colin Jackson continues today.
