A jury in the Hong Kong high court Tuesday returned a guilty verdict after finance executive Ivan Chan admitted to killing his mistress and disposing of her body six years ago.

According to the South China Morning Post Madam Justice Anthea Pang Po Kam said the following in her sentencing, “since you have been convicted by the jury, there is only one sentence, which is a mandatory one, you are jailed for life.”

The case centred around the death of Chun Ka Yee a 33-year old nightclub hostess who was Chan’s mistress at the time of her disappearance. Chun was last seen entering her flat at Amoy Gardens in 2011.

In court two years ago, Chan had said he didn’t know what happened to Chun after they broke up, “I never killed anyone,” Chan had sworn under oath.  Chun’s body has never been found.

Despite a lack of forensic evidence, a body or confession that linked Chan to the death of his ex-mistress, he was found guilty of murder in the original trial. A retrial was ordered in July after Chan appealed the decision.

However, last month Chan finally admitted killing Chun by mistake after a quarrel about their affair. He then placed her body in a nylon bag that he disposed of in a rubbish skip between Tseung Kwan O and Sai Kung. He also detailed how he pretended to be Chun for six months after the murder, replying to text messages from people who were looking for her.
