Lawyers for an American woman convicted in Hong Kong of drugging her banker husband and bashing him to death say she has decided not to appeal. They say she will seek a transfer to a U.S. prison.
Nancy Kissel, 47, was convicted last month for a second time and sentenced to life in prison for the 2003 murder. Her first conviction in 2005 was overturned by Hong Kong's top court last year.
Lawyer Colin Cohen said Thursday that Kissel didn't appeal by a Tuesday deadline and will seek a transfer to a U.S. federal prison.
Another lawyer said the process usually takes a year and Kissel will likely seek a transfer to California because her mother lives in the Californian city Sebastopol. The second lawyer said the Kissel family requested he not give his name.
