Murder victimís wife cradled him in her arms as he lay dying thumbnail

THE family of murdered Randalstown businessman Nelson Cheung have heard harrowing details about his final moments.
Mr Cheung's sister and children listened live from Hong Kong at a tariff hearing this week, where it was explained that the slightly-built takeaway owner was brutally stabbed 18 times and robbed of £200 takings by men desperate to pay off a drugs debt.
The 64-year-old victim's widow Kam-Fung 'Winnie' Cheung did not wish to watch proceedings.
Belfast Crown Court was told how police discovered Mrs Cheung on her knees, cradling her husband at the side of the Caddy Road outside Randalstown in the early hours of January 8, 2015.
After their vehicle was rammed, she was dragged from the car by the hair before she managed to escape, running to a nearby house to raise the alarm.
The court heard that she was 'saturated in blood' and wearing only one shoe, having sustained a serious head injury and a stab wound on the hand.
‘Alarmed by her appearance', the occupants of the house refused to let her in but rang police.
As her husband lay dying, Winnie then tried to flag down passing vehicles - but two passed before the third stopped to help.
