A man who insulted his wife and sexually assaulted his daughter and granddaughter was murdered by his outraged family members who dumped his dismembered body in Hexian County, eastern Anhui Province.
Zhang Shimin, a resident of Nanjing in neighboring Jiangsu Province, often scolded and beat his wife Wu Baodi, 65, and threatened to kill her.
He also raped his daughter and granddaughter and had sexual relationship with his daughter-in-law, said the Hexian County People's Court. Hexian is separated from Nanjing by the Yangtze River.
His wife could no longer bear his heinous acts. Instead of calling police, Wu asked a man named Liu Qiangjun to kill her husband and promised to marry her daughter Zhang Xiaoxia to him, the Jinling Evening News reported today.
One night last September Liu went to the man's bedroom and hit him to death with a rod while he was drunk. Wu then dismembered his body and with the help of his daughter threw the body parts over a bridge in Hexian County.
The court convicted Wu, Zhang and Liu of intentional homicide. Liu was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Wu and her daughter were sentenced to 12 and four years respectively, the paper said.
