Husband And In Laws Of Woman Killed For Inability To Conceive Spark Outrage As They Are Jailed For Just 3 Years

A Chinese court made a rare move to calm public outrage this week over a controversial murder case involving a young woman killed by her husband and in-laws.

The 22-year-old Chinese woman had only been married for six months when her husband and in-laws beat her to death, because she had been unable to conceive a child, according to state-run news agency Xinhua.

The woman, identified by court documents only by her surname Fang, was from China's eastern Shandong province. She died on January 31, 2019, according to the Xinhua report.

Yucheng People's Court in Shandong heard the woman's husband and in-laws abused her, denied her food, and left her outside in freezing temperatures in winter as a form of punishment.

In January, they were found guilty of abuse, a charge applied when the alleged perpetrators are family members. It carries a maximum sentence of seven years in prison.

Fang's husband and his parents were later sentenced to between two and three years in prison. The court had decided to grant a more lenient punishment because "each defendant was able to truthfully confess the relevant facts of the crime, which constituted a confession, and showed repentance," according to the verdict, published by state-run newspaper People's Daily.

The sentences prompted nationwide outcry and discussion about broader societal problems surrounding women and violence. A retrial was ordered in April but it failed to calm public criticism..

On Tuesday, in the face of growing public outrage, the Yucheng People's Court reposted the April statement ordering the retrial.
The retrial wasn't ordered due to a perceived miscarriage of justice -- rather, it was sent back because of a technicality.

"The court of the first instance did not have an open trial and failed to protect the statutory litigation rights of the appellant Yang, which violated the legal proceedings," said the court's statement.

This case comes just a month after another gruesome murder that raised similar concerns about inadequate protections for women. Lhamo, a Tibetan farmer and livestreamer in China, was streaming a video of herself last month when a man burst in and set her on fire. Authorities are investigating her abusive ex-husband.



  1. So, it's not only Nigeria that these things happen?

  2. If only women csn shun marriage, youll realise most men are sick nd empty nd their families encourage their nonsense. Have kids, make money,enjoy ur life.

    1. Deliberately having kids without a stable male influence is not good either. Notice the behavior of many african american men.

      You owe it to your future kids to have a good man as their father.

    2. Very big lie. Leave african american men. Talk abt women who single handedly trained that turned out super amazing. In over 50billion example, youre using the ones born on d street of drugs,lawlessness and indecency.

    3. Some families know they have bad irresponsible sons and then go out and look for a naive young wife for him hoping it will straighten his life.
      9 out of 10, its d poor girl dat will suffer the consequences.

  3. Chai.. See wickedness. See the pressure they put on the woman. Just six months of marriage. Poor lady.
