A man who was jailed for life for murdering his ex-wife to get custody of their young son has lost an appeal to reduce his 28-year minimum term.

Wai Hong Tsang killed Chinese student Mingzi Yang at her house in Sincil Bank, Lincoln, on 17 June 2014.

He was found guilty following a trial at Lincoln Crown Court last year.

Court of Appeal judges threw out his complaint and said there was "no justifiable challenge to the minimum term".

Tsang, 34, formerly of Bluebell Road, Scartho, near Grimsby, drove to the edge of Lincoln then cycled to his ex-wife's home before he brutally battered her to death with a weapon which has never been found.

Ms Yang suffered 26 injuries, with the most serious being blunt trauma injuries to her head.
