A father who killed his daughter’s 9-year-old classmate was sentenced to death by the Shangrao Intermediate People’s Court in Jiangxi province on Friday.

The court announced the sentence to the father identified only as Wang, and deprived him of his political rights for life.

Wang said he would not appeal to higher court.

On May 9, Wang’s daughter told him she was bullied by her classmate surnamed Liu in the Shangrao No 5 Primary School, and then Wang complained about it in a WeChat group of the class, according to the court.

Since Wang had a bad temper, his wife took the initiative to communicate with the class head and Liu’s parents, hoping to solve the problem by rearranging the children’s seats, the court said.

The next morning, Wang took his daughter to school, but got angry when he discovered that Liu’s parents were not there, even though his wife had told him the problem had been resolved, the court was told.

Wang sent his daughter back home, and bought a knife to school, it said.

Later, Wang stormed into the classroom and stabbed Liu, who had moved out of his original seat, with the knife more than 10 times, and then carried him out of the classroom and dropped him on the ground, it said, adding Liu died at the hospital.

“Wang didn’t want the relationship between his daughter and her classmate to improve, and only wanted revenge. His killing of the boy, who was only 9, constitutes the crime of intentional homicide,” the court said in its ruling.

Although Wang confessed to the crime, his cruel behaviour impacted the society negatively and he was not forgiven by the victim’s family, “we therefore decided not to be lenient in punishing him,” the ruling added.


A tragedy occurred on 12th November when a 12-year-old schoolgirl jumped to her death in the elementary school building in Guangdong, China. Her father received this piece of news and rushed to her school, only to find her lying on the ground, falling unconscious.

Xiao Ru’s father painfully described when she smiled for the last time as he called out for her name. Even though she was sped to the hospital, she still couldn’t make it as she suffered from breathing difficulties and excessive blood loss.

When Xiao Ru’s father looked at the CCTV footage of what happened before her death, he broke down in tears seeing how she was treated by her mathematics teacher. According to See Hua Daily, this entire incident happened during lunchtime, when Ms Wang (the teacher) insisted to check on Xiao Ru’s homework before the young girl had any chance to eat at all.

Ms Wang threw Xiao Ru’s homework onto the ground, in front of all the kids, and she began yelling at the girl for not finishing her homework. The teacher went on to smack the girl’s palm for a couple of times with a ruler and continued criticising Xiao Ru for 3-4 minutes. All her classmates witnessed how humiliated Xiao Ru felt, and she burst into tears. Right after taking in Ms Wang’s scolding, Xiao Ru walked out of her classroom which was located on the 4th floor and jumped off the building.

Exasperated by the poor girl’s death, the father demanded the 40-year-old teacher to give an explanation about the whole disaster. However, not only that Ms Wang did not show herself after this incident, but the school was also unable to provide sufficient information regarding the teacher’s qualification certificate.

Nobody knows what she had gone through before her leap of death, we hope that she is able to rest in peace now. It’s saddening to see children choosing to end their lives because of modern-day stress that some adults sneer at, mocking them with the mindset of “we had it worse back in our days”.


A seven-month-old baby suffocated to death in the master bedroom after her parents left her alone while she was sleeping. The incident happened on January 15th this year in Singapore and the baby had reportedly been sleeping alone since December last year as her parents wanted her to “transition to the next stage of her development”.

According to CNA, the coroner’s inquiry on Friday (October 4th) revealed that the baby, Yuri Chua Le En, had suffocated when she slipped and got trapped in the 8cm gap between her mattress and the padded bed rail. The investigation found that both Yuri’s parents, who were unmarried, had been allowing her to sleep alone. They also said that they were sick that day and put her in another room so that they would not infect the baby.

Yuri’s mother said that the night before the baby’s death, she had fed and nursed Yuri as normal and put her to sleep at 9pm. Yuri was placed on a blanket in the middle of the full-sized bed in the bedroom while her mother patted her to sleep on the night of January 14th.

During the course of the night, the baby did not make any noise and her father entered the room once at about 11pm to adjust the air-conditioner settings. “He stated that the room was dark and (the baby) was not making any noise. Both parents stated that they did not hear (the baby) make any noise throughout the night,” the court documents stated.

However, her father got the shock of his life when he entered the room at about 7am and found Yuri’s body “almost fully trapped in the gap” between the mattress and the padded bed rail at the foot of the bed. Her face was turned towards the bed rail, and she was unresponsive.

Paramedics were called and when they pronounced her dead at 8am in the Jurong residence. Dr Chan Shijia, consultant forensic pathologist with the Forensic Medicine Division of the Health Sciences Authority performed the autopsy on the baby and confirmed that the baby girl had died suffocation caused by a blockage of the nose and mouth by a surface.

The baby’s mother said that Yuri could roll over, was learning to sit and could lift her head and chest up when lying down. Dr Chan said that while a seven-month-old baby could turn over on the bed, they are unable to climb or crawl properly so when Yuri got stuck in the gap, she would not have been able to free herself.

Apparently, this is not the first time the baby had gotten stuck in that same gap. A few weeks before the tragedy, the parents said that they heard Yuri crying in the middle of the night and rushed in to find her trapped in the same part of the gap before rescuing her.

The court ruled that there was no evidence of foul play in the baby’s death and State Coroner Kamala Ponnampalam said that the death was an “unfortunate misadventure” while the cause of death was consistent with suffocation. She advised others that they should ensure their babies are sleeping safely.

Although infants should not be sleeping in the same bed as others, this does not mean they should be placed in a different room. It is advisable to place an infant on his or her back and preferably to be sleeping in a well-built crib that is free of loose bedding, pillows and toys, which could cause entrapment or suffocation.
