Deeply-religious and wealthy Mosman Park mother Annabelle Chen had been murdered in her Meath Mews home, police said on Thursday. Ms Chen’s former husband, Ah Ping Ban (65), and her daughter, Tiffany Yiting Wan (25), both appeared in the Perth Magistrates’ Court charged with her murder late Thursday morning. Detectives could not identify Ms Chen (57) until Ms Wan reported her mother missing on September 1.
