Cannibal son invited parents round for dinner then chopped them up and ate them
Chau Hoi-leung, 30, killed his parents after they stopped funding his lavish lifestyle
A son who felt harassed by his parents is alleged to have invited them round for lunch where he murdered and ate them.
Chau Hoi-leung, 30, fell out with his parents when they told him to go out and get a job because they no longer wanted to fund his lavish lifestyle.
He accused them of abandoning him and cut them off so when he invited them to lunch at his Hong Kong flat Chau Wing-ki, 65, and Siu Yuet-yee, 62, thought it was for a reunion.
However, it is alleged that when they arrived he and friend Tse Chun-kei, 36, killed them, chopped them up, and then cooked them with rice.
The court heard that Hoi-leung and Chun-kei had planned the murder for three months, buying knives and fridges to store the bodies and microwaves and a rice cooker.

Detectives searched his flat soon after his parents were reported missing and discovered two heads in a fridge.
They also found body parts in freezers and bloodstains were still on the floor.
Parts of a body that had not fitted into the freezer had been salted and packed into lunchboxes.
Chau says that he was not in his right mind when he carried out the alleged murder because he had been emotionally abandoned by his parents.

He pleaded guilty to murder with diminished responsibility but prosecutors want him convicted of murder.
He had also tried to cover up the deaths by reporting his parents missing and told police that the elderly pair had said they were going to mainland China to have some fun.
However detectives became suspicions and searched his flat where they found the bodies, receipts and notes detailing the planning.
Michael Arthur, prosecuting, said: “Their crime was greatly premeditated. Their planning was extensive.”
The trial continues.
