A rejected husband who threatened to jump off a building in North Point moments after chopping his wife was jailed for six years and eight months yesterday. The Court of First Instance heard that Wong Tip-keung, 35, had married his mainland wife, Ng Yi-tuen, 35, in 1996, but she was only able to obtain a two-way permit in January last year. But a day after she joined her husband in Hong Kong, she left him and moved in with her mother in North Point. The court heard that when Wong confronted Ng on August 26 and asked her to return home, she said she would 'rather be dead'. Wong then attacked her with the chopper, inflicting serious cuts to her head, neck and one of her vertebra. 'Wong very literally chopped pieces of flesh out of her . . . and common sense tells us that the resulting scars are severely disfiguring,' said Deputy High Court Judge Alan Wright. Wong pleaded guilty to wounding.
