HONG KONG (AP) – The ex-husband and former in-laws of a slain Hong Kong model have been detained on charges in her killing after police found body parts in a refrigerator and a pot.

The case has gripped many in a Chinese territory where any violent crime is rare.

Ex-husband Alex Kwong, his father Kwong Kau and his brother Anthony Kwong were charged with murdering model Abby Choi a day earlier.  Alex Kwong’s mother faces one count of perverting the course of justice. None was granted bail.

Choi was a 28-year-old model with more than 100,000 followers on Instagram.

According to a report filed with the Hong Kong Police, she disappeared Feb. 21. The defendants have not yet entered their pleas.
