The ex-husband and former in-laws of a slain Hong Kong model, Abby Choi, were put in custody without bail Monday on a joint murder charge, after police found parts of her body in a refrigerator.

Ex-husband Alex Kwong, his father Kwong Kau and his brother Anthony Kwong, were charged with murdering model Abby Choi. His mother, Jenny Li, faces one count of perverting the course of justice. The four were placed in custody without bail.

Choi, 28, was a model with more than 100,000 followers on Instagram. Her last post was Feb. 19, featuring a photoshoot she had done with fashion magazine L’Officiel Monaco.

Alex and his family members appeared in court on Feb. 28, public broadcaster RTHK reported via CNN. RTHK further stated that the defendants, who were all denied bail by the Kowloon City Magistrates’ Court, have not yet entered their pleas and the case was adjourned until May.

Police first began investigating Abby’s disappearance when she was reported missing Feb. 21, according to the AP who cited a report filed with the Hong Kong Police. Her remains were found just days later.

Choi was an influencer who documented her glamorous life of photo shoots and fashion shows on Instagram. In her social media profile, Abby wrote that she was “embracing every moment of life.”

Her last post, from mid-February, featured a photoshoot she had done with L’Officiel Monaco, a fashion publication.

“From Hong Kong to the cover of L’Officiel Monaco, my journey as a style icon continues,” she shared in her Feb. 14 post. “Grateful for this recognition and the continued support along the way.”

Before that, Choi celebrated her feature in Vogue China by offering her 121,000 Instagram followers a sneak preview into her latest photos. “Like what you like,” she wrote in November 2022. “Love what you love.”
