China Sentences 2 to Death in Fatal Poisoning

7 April 2014

Chinese state media say a kindergarten headmaster and a man have been sentenced to death in a poisoning case that left two girls dead. According to state broadcaster China Central Television on Saturday, the head of the kindergarten was upset that a rival school had better enrollments and injected rat poison into a bottle of yogurt. He then asked his accomplice to place it on the road in late April 2013. Two village girls died after drinking the yogurt, which was placed with a notebook and a pencil in a plastic bag on the way to the other kindergarten in Pingshan County.—AP
