Hong Kong's 'milkshake murder'

American expatriate convicted of killing her banker husband set to be retried seven years after the murder.

    Nancy Kissel, an American expatriate and wife of a high-flying investment banker, is back in the dock for a re-trial in a Hong Kong court.

    She was found guilty of murdering her husband five years ago by spiking a milkshake and with a metal ornament.

    The retrial is about to throw the salacious details of Kissel's life - marital violence, adultery and wealth - into the spotlight once again.
