Background of the Conviction

In 2011, Robert Cantor, an individual involved in an extramarital affair with Tung’s estranged wife, Sophie Menuet, was brutally murdered.

Despite the lack of direct physical evidence, the prosecution successfully argued the case based on circumstantial evidence and witness testimonies. Tung was convicted again in July 2023, facing charges including murder, arson, stalking, and desecration of a human body.
