Murderer of 8 people executed in Shaanxi


September 28, 2004

A murderer of eight people was executed on Monday morning in Zhashui county of northwest China's Shaanxi Province.

The murderer, Jian Xueliang, a farmer in Mingxing village of the county, hacked to death with an ax eight members of Yang Rongwen's family in the village out of revenge in mid August.

Before the manslaying occurred, Jian was just released from imprisonment on a rape charge. When he was just out of jail, he went to Yang's home to slay Yang and his wife, four-year-old daughter, ten-year-old nephew, 80-year-old grandfather. Then he rushed into the home of Yang Rongyuan, Yang's brother, and killed him and the twins of his.

Local policemen caught Jian August 18 and, on September 14, the Shangluo City Intermediate People's Court sentenced him to death penalty, depriving him of his political rights to life, in addition to a civil compensation of 12,000 yuan (about US$1,450) against him. Jian didn't appeal following the first trial.
