The young lads were hang­ing around a school in the town­ship of Lian­qiao in the prov­ince of Hu­nan, south­ern China, when they de­cided to rob the only adult guard­ing the school, the state-run

said. The boys – who are stu­dents at other schools – beat the 52-year-old woman with a wooden stick, stuffed her mouth with cloth and dragged her into a bath­room, where she died.

The at­tack­ers ran away with their vic­tim’s mobile phone and about 2,000 yuan in cash (£200) be­fore hey were ar­rested.

It was re­ported the three boys were all “left-be­hind” chil­dren – mean­ing their par­ents are mi­grant work­ers who go to more in­dus­trial Chi­nese ci­ties for jobs, leav­ing their kids un­der the care of other adult rel­a­tives.
