Wife who admits killing top banker in final appeal


A very sad saga for all concerned.

Nancy Kissel, who admits to killing her Merrill Lynch banker husband in 2003, will ask Hong Kong’s highest court one last time to let her appeal a conviction for murder.

Bloomberg reports that the mother-of-three is scheduled to argue that jurors who handed her a second conviction in 2011 might not have properly considered evidence of her mental condition when she struck Robert Kissel in the head with a lead ornament. Nancy turned 50 in prison this month, some 10 years into a life sentence.

Her journey from a $20,000-a-month apartment with a view of the South China Sea to a prison cell along Hong Kong’s Chinese border has spawned books and a Lifetime Television movie. Media coverage intensified after Robert’s millionaire real estate developer brother, Andrew Kissel, was stabbed to death in 2006. If judges don’t agree that there was injustice in her conviction or an important point of law arising, the appeals process will be over.
