Jailed murderer Henry Chau is facing a court challenge from his elder brother to surrender his inheritance from the estate of their parents - whom he killed and dismembered in 2013. The brother, Chau Hoi-ying, wants the court to disqualify Henry Chau, 31, from obtaining the assets of their late father Chau Wing-ki, 65, and mother Siu Yuet-yee, 63. According to a High Court writ filed by the elder sibling, the couple's estate included their jointly owned flat at Ivy Tower in Sai Ying Pun. They also had two properties on the mainland and savings of more than HK$400,000 in their bank accounts, it was revealed during the murder trial in March. Chau Hoi-ying is requesting that the court appoint him as the executor of their father's estate under the Probate and Administration Ordinance. According to the law, after a person dies and the court finds it necessary to appoint someone as administrator of the estate other than the person who would by law have been entitled to a probate grant, the court may appoint such a person as it thinks fit. Chau Hoi-ying is also asking the court to preclude Henry Chau from any inheritance set out under their parents' will, made on September 16, 2008, and to order him to hand over his part of the probate grant to the elder brother. He asked that Henry Chau "be passed over from the grant of probate to the estate of Chau Wing-ki". As well, Henry Chau is asked to pay for any expenses or extra stamp duty incurred in connection with the requested transfer of assets. When he was convicted on March 20 of the double murder, Henry Chau was described as an "extremely dangerous man" by deputy judge Mr Justice Michael Stuart-Moore. He had asked his parents to help tidy up his new home in Tai Kok Tsui on March 1, 2013 - the day the couple disappeared from the face of the earth, the court heard during the trial. Henry Chau lied to his brother that their parents had travelled to the mainland for leisure. When the brother began to worry their parents were missing, Henry Chau helped look for them. He was living a double life at the time, assisting his elder sibling on one hand, but taking time out to return to the crime scene in Tai Kok Tsui on the other to cut up the corpses. Body parts were salted, microwaved and boiled, the court heard. Some other parts were dumped into the sea, Henry Chau and his friend Tse Chun-kei, 38, admitted in court, while the rest were stored in plastic boxes until the two were arrested on March 15, 2013. Henry Chau was jailed for life while Tse was acquitted of the murder charge. Tse had served his sentence for preventing the lawful burial of the couple and had been released.
