End of the legal line for wife of murdered Merrill Lynch banker


'Nothing more we can do'.

Nancy Kissel’s decade-long fight against charges that she murdered her Merrill Lynch banker husband ended in Hong Kong today as a three-judge panel ruled that her conviction can’t be appealed again.

Bloomberg reports that the 50-year-old Michigan-born expatriate gave no visible reaction as Judge Roberto Ribeiro announced the decision by the Chinese city’s Court of Final Appeal today.

'I...I have no words', Kissel’s mother, Jean McGlothlin, said, sobbing, when reached by phone in the U.S. after the decision. Kissel’s lawyer Colin Cohen said there was 'nothing more we can do'.

Nancy Kissel has served some 10 years of a life sentence in Hong Kong for killing Robert Kissel in November 2003 at the luxury Parkview apartment where they lived with their son and two daughters. Police found her husband’s body concealed in a family storeroom, wrapped inside a sleeping bag and rolled up in a carpet four days after he was killed.
