Hong Kong executions, 1940s

Can anyone help with some information? My partner claims his Mother's Aunt's husband's first wife was the last woman to be executed in Hong Kong. There is some truth to this, but I suspect she wasn't the last... All I know is that this execution took place in Hong Kong in the late 1940s, and it involved a woman who poisoned her children and workers in the shop the family owned in Western district. The husband survived, went on to remarry and had a second family. The first wife was seldom if ever dicsussed.

This is a picture of a Hong Kong street in the 1940s that I found many years ago. I no longer have a link to it.  I believe it was in the public domain then.

Can anyone put a name to it?
