Mur­der sus­pect flees to find nicer po­lice

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

A man sus­pected of mur­der­ing his wife in Pingchang county fled about 1,400 kilo­me­ters to his home­town in Jurong city, Jiangsu, and turned him­self in be­cause he be­lieved the po­lice there would treat him well. The man, sur­named Yang, killed his wife on July 21 with a knife af­ter a quar­rel, ac­cord­ing to the Pingchang po­lice. Yang ar­rived in Jurong af­ter 10 days and turned him­self in to po­lice on Sun­day. He said he took the trip be­cause he thought the po­lice of his home­town were nicer than the po­lice of Pingchang. He has now been trans­ferred to the cus­tody of Pingchang au­thor­i­ties.
