‘How could you be so merciless?’: ex-girlfriend knifed 58 times after balcony fall

When Shuyu Zhou fell from the balcony of her ex-girlfriend’s Zetland apartment in June last year, she was badly injured but very much alive.

As the 23-year-old lay helpless and writhing in pain on the ground, and while a passer-by called for help, Zixi ‘Jessie’ Wang took a knife from her pocket and stabbed or slashed her some 58 times in the neck and upper body.

Graphic CCTV footage of Ms Zhou’s final moments – totalling 11 distressing minutes – was played to the NSW Supreme Court on Monday during a sentencing hearing for Wang, who pleaded guilty to the murder in May.

In the footage, Ms Zhou is seen falling onto a corrugated metal fence and then onto the ground. Her legs and arms are flailing but she is unable to move, having sustained a dislocated hip and fractured lower spine.
