Flat Bush murder accused pleads guilty

Ephraim Beazley (Right) fatally attacked Xi Wang at her front door as she held their two-year-old son in her arms.

The man accused of murdering Flat Bush mother Xi Wang has this week pleaded guilty.

Ephraim Beazley, her ex-husband, travelled from Rotorua on December 10 to east Auckland where he violently attacked Wang at her front door as she held their two-year-old son in her arms, court documents have revealed.

The Herald obtained a police summary of facts which reported that shortly after 10pm, Beazley arrived at Wang’s home in Flat Bush intending to kill her.

Beazley knocked on the door and when Wang opened it, without speaking he stabbed her several times in the neck, body and legs.

When he knew he had done enough to kill her, he fled the scene.

He left their son in her arms, the Herald reported.

He made his way on foot to Botany Town Centre where he called police and told them what he had done.

Wang was rushed to hospital in critical condition, but died later that night from her injuries.

Beazley entered a guilty plea at the High Court at Auckland yesterday morning.

He will be sentenced next month.
