County head 'killer' captured
Latest Updated by 2006-12-04 16:07:14

A MAN has been arrested for allegedly killing a county head and five others at his home in Southwest China's Guizhou Province last week, local police said yesterday (Dec 3).

 

Wen Jiangang, head of Xingren County in Qianxinan Buyi and Miao Ethnic Minority Autonomous Prefecture, was found dead at home last Monday night. His wife, one of their sons, mother-in-law, elder sister and the family babysitter were also killed.

 

Cao Hui, 42, a jobless native of the county, has confessed to breaking into the house with weapons, robbing the family of their belongings, killing the six and fleeing, police said.

 

Cao was captured Friday. He was released from prison in 2002 after serving 17 years behind the bar for indecent acts, Xinhua said.

 

A police source said Cao was an acquaintant of the victim Wen. Cao came to Wen's house to talk and then killed him with a hammer after Wen's family members went to bed.

 

Cao said he killed them for money and no one else was behind the murder, the source said.

 

Cao continued to use Wen's mobile phone after he fled his home, which exposed him to police, the source said.

 

Reports said Wen had been suspended for local coal mine accidents last year and had vowed to close those unlicensed after he resumed office.

 

Wen had been also responsible for investigating the director general of the local coal mine administration, who was sentenced to death in 2004 for taking 2.59 million yuan (US$324,000) in bribes and embezzling more than 4.6 million yuan of public funds.
