A 36-YEAR-OLD grave digger who stabbed a fellow villager, after claiming he had been chased by the victim's dog, was jailed by the District Court yesterday. Ho Kam-ming, 36, was found guilty of wounding Pun Lee-ying with intent at his son's factory at Wo Hop Shek on September 13. Ho had pleaded not guilty to the offence. But he had earlier pleaded guilty to criminal damage and possession of heroin. Judge Burrell jailed Ho for a total of three years and 10 months. The court heard that Mr Pun, who operates another stone factory in the area, had refused to hand over to Ho a set of remains because the gravestone had not been made. Later, Mr Pun's son was investigating noises outside the factory when he saw Ho throwing stones and a spade at his dog and damaging several marble tombstones. Ho then dashed into the factory, demanding to speak to Mr Pun. He later left the premises and returned with a knife. Ho complained he had been chased by the dog and an argument ensued. The court heard that Ho then stabbed Mr Pun with the knife. The son sustained stab wounds to his chest and lacerations on his right arm. Police arrested Ho in Wo Hop Shek village 10 days later and found a small packet of heroin in his trouser pocket.
