Wife murderer Ekaireb gets life

    Jewish property tycoon Robert Ekaireb was jailed for life this week for the murder of his pregnant wife in 2006.

    Mr Ekaireb, 39, was recommended to serve a minimum 22 year sentence for the murder of China-born Li Hau Cao, a former lapdancer. Her body has never been found.

    The multi-millionaire, who owned more than 50 properties worth over £65 million and a jewellery business in Hatton Garden, was convicted last month.

    The jury at the Old Bailey heard that Mr Ekaireb suspected his 27-year-old wife of adultery. Weeks before her disappearance he had hired a private detective to follow her.

    Mr Ekaireb, from Hendon, north-west London, is of Iraqi-Jewish descent. His father Rex Ekaireb is the former chairman of the Sephardi Od Yosef Hai synagogue’s finance committee.
