In court, man ad­mits killing 19

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

A man pleaded guilty on Wed­nes­day to killing 19 peo­ple, in­clud­ing his par­ents. Yang Qing­pei killed his par­ents in Yema vil­lage on Sept 28 after a re­quest for money was re­jected by his fa­ther, ac­cord­ing to the Qu­jing In­ter­me­di­ate Peo­ple’s Court. Fear­ing his crime would be dis­cov­ered, Yang killed 17 of his neigh­bors, in­clud­ing three chil­dren. He then fled to Kun­ming, ac­cord­ing to an ear­lier state­ment is­sued by the Yun­nan Pub­lic Se­cu­rity De­part­ment. Yang ex­pressed re­morse and apol­o­gized to the rel­a­tives of the de­ceased. He will be sen­tenced later.
