Hunt­ing part­ner shot dead

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

A woman in Yubei district has filed a law­suit against a food com­pany, claim­ing its brand of spicy gluten caused a fam­ily con­flict. The woman, sur­named Liu, said the gluten’s pack­ag­ing looked like that for a con­dom, which an­gered her hus­band and caused him to de­mand a di­vorce. She said she con­tacted the com­pany but a cus­tomer ser­vice rep­re­sen­ta­tive al­legedly ig­nored her com­plaint. The com­pany has apol­o­gized to Liu and of­fered her some free spicy gluten, but she has re­fused to drop the case. Wuhan that be­queathed her house to her sec­ond son has been de­clared in­valid by a judge. The 84-year-old woman, sur­named Zhou, made the will last year but did not write it her­self or sign it be­cause she was il­lit­er­ate. Four of her five chil­dren re­jected the will and the mat­ter ended up in court. A judge has now ruled that the will was in­valid and or­dered the house to be di­vided equally among the five chil­dren. Three men in Xing’an county have ap­peared in court af­ter their hunt­ing part­ner was shot and killed while track­ing wild boars. Tang Defa, Han Day­ong and Fu Youneng went on a hunt­ing trip with the fourth man, sur­named Chen, on Feb 27. Chen went into the un­der­growth to flush out their prey, when Tang al­legedly mis­took him for a boar and shot him. At first, Tang, Han and Fu told po­lice that Chen had shot him­self af­ter his gun dis­charged ac­ci­den­tally. How­ever, Han and Fu later changed their sto­ries, lead­ing to Tang’s de­ten­tion. For har­bor­ing a crim­i­nal and il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of a firearm, Han was sen­tenced to 28 months im­pris­on­ment with three years’ pro­ba­tion, while Fu was jailed for 7 months for har­bor­ing a crim­i­nal and Tang is still await­ing trial.
