Nancy Kissel, serving a life sentence for drugging her husband, killing him and stuffing him into a rug, lost her appeal today. The American expatriate was convicted in 2005, retried and convicted a second time in 2011. The sensational case mixes a heady dose of murder with adultery, violence, spying, greed and enormous wealth.
On November 6, 2003, police in Hong Kong entered a storage room where they found just what they’d expected — the decomposing corpse of Robert Kissel wrapped tightly in a rug. Wife Nancy Kissel was accused of disabling her husband with a drugged milkshake before bludgeoning him to death and hiding his body.
The highest court in Hong King offered Kissel a glimmer of hope, when it struck down the American expatriate’s first murder conviction and awarded her half her legal fees from the first trial to prepare for a second. Read the whole case of Hong Kong’s Milkshake Murderess.
