But in a couple of months Tiffany Wan, who was sentenced to four years and 10 months behind bars for being an accessory to the killing, could get access to a multi-million dollar trust left behind by her mother Annabelle Chen.

Harrison Ford insists Chris Pratt will NOT inherit his Indiana Jones role adding he is the ONLY actor who can play the hero: 'When I'm gone, he's gone'

Harrison Ford insists Chris Pratt will NOT inherit his Indiana Jones role adding he is the ONLY actor who can play the hero: 'When I'm gone, he's gone' The 76-year-old Illinois native said that if he has it his way, he will be the only actor who will ever play the adventurous professor of archaeology. 'Don't you get it? I'm Indiana Jones.'

An investigation by WAtoday has found Ms Chen did not have a will when she died in 2016.

But she did have a trust fund which held real estate and land believed to be worth several millions of dollars.

It’s believed Wan, who cried in the dock as images of her late mother’s head injuries were shown in court, is a beneficiary of that fund.

Supreme Court documents show the administration of Ms Chen's estate was granted to an Osborne Park based law firm - Haynes Leeuwin - who specialise in wills and inheritance matters.

Paul Haynes, a director of Haynes Leeuwin, confirmed to WAtoday he'd been appointed as the administrator of Ms Chen's estate, but he declined to comment further.

Wan, 27, and her father Ah Ping Ban, 69, stood trial in the WA Supreme Court last year accused of murdering Ms Chen in 2016, after her body was found stuffed in a suitcase in the Swan River on July 2 that year.

Upon her release Tiffany Wan could get access to her late mother's multi-million dollar trust. Body-in-the-suitcase fortune: Murdered Mosman Park woman's daughter set to inherit millions© Supplied Annabelle Chen was described as a private and very spiritual person. Prosecutors had alleged Ms Chen, 58, was bludgeoned to death at her Mosman Park home before being dumped in the river.

A Supreme Court jury spent four days deliberating before finding Ban guilty of murder and acquitting Wan of murder but finding her guilty of accessory after the fact.

Ban was jailed for life with a minimum of 20 years. He is appealing his conviction.

Wan received a four year and 10 month prison term for being an accessory.

She could be released on parole in late July.

It's understood she is currently serving her sentence at the Boronia Pre-Release Centre for Women, a minimum-security facility south-east of Perth designed to "prepare women for re-entry into the community."

Justice Joe McGrath - who presided over the jury trial last year - sentenced her for helping her father in covering up the murder by washing his clothes, removing footprints from Ms Chen's home and sending text messages to her mother, even though she knew she was dead.

"Your assistance was prolonged and sustained," Justice McGrath said of Wan's conduct.

"You told persistent lies to the police...you knew your mother was dead."

Wan had offered to plead guilty to accessory before the trial started but this offer was rejected by the state.

It's understood plans are under way to sell Ms Chen's four-bedroom two-bathroom Mosman Park house on Meath Mews.
