The Kuching Court of Appeal has adjourned the hearing of an appeal by Ling Hang Tsyr, the wife of slain bank manager Wong Jing Kui after one of the judges recused himself from the case.
Ling was found guilty and sentenced to death in 2017 for abetting the murder of her husband in Sibu seven years ago.

Judge Stephen Chung recused himself from hearing the appeal as he comes from Sibu and was familiar with Ling's co-accused Tiong King Guan, who is still at large.
