Man found guilty of Sincil Bank murder

Wai Hong Tsang, 33, has been found guilty of the murder of Mingzi Yang in Lincoln earlier this year.

The body of 29-year-old Ms Yang was discovered at her home in Sincil Bank, Lincoln, on Tuesday 17th June.

Following a trial at Lincoln Crown Court that began on the 1st December, the jury today returned a unanimous guilty verdict. Tsang will be sentenced at Crown Court on Monday at 10am.

Speaking after the verdict, DCI Martin Holvey, senior investigating officer from the East Midlands Special Operations Unit, said: “This was an extremely well planned murder. Tsang is a cold, calculated man who has never owned up to his crime. He has left a young boy with no mother and a distraught family in China with no daughter. I am happy that justice has been completed for the family but also extremely sad for them. I hope todays verdict will help give some closure to the family in China who I will be speaking with over the phone tonight.”
