An American teacher appeared in Kowloon City Court yesterday charged with murder following a brawl in a popular Tsim Sha Tsui bar street on Wednesday last week. Gannon Walter Sutter Jow, 28, is accused of murdering 24-year-old Cheung Kin-lung outside 12 Knutsford Steps. He is also charged with wounding with intent to murder Wong Wing-yiu with a knife. He did not enter pleas. A postmortem examination found that Cheung, an odd-job worker who lived with his father on Lantau Island, died from loss of blood, police said earlier. He died from a single stab wound to the stomach. Wong, 29, suffered a back injury. An identification parade will be held before Jow's next court appearance on Friday, the court heard. Jow's lawyer, Fung Chi-wai, said the defendant's father had just arrived in Hong Kong from the United States. A number of his friends and family members had also been allowed to visit him while he was in police custody. Fung asked principal magistrate Anthony Kwok Kai-on to transfer Jow from police custody to the Lai Chi Kok Reception Centre after the identification parade. Kwok said that the matter would be dealt with after the procedure took place within the next two days. Jow is accused of carrying a knife during the melee that spilled from Knutsford Terrace into Kimberley Road at about 4am last Wednesday, police said earlier. After the brawl, officers arrested three other men aged 25 to 29 in connection with the case. The three, including a New Zealand man and Wong, have been released on bail of HK$10,000 each. At the same time as the brawl, another fight involving 10 youths from two groups broke out in the same area. A 20-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man were injured. Police arrested three men over the brawl. They have been granted bail and none has been charged.
