On Wednesday, a court in Beijing, China condemned a man of murder and sentenced him to death in the killing of a 2-year-old baby girl in which he threw her to the ground in a case which shocked the entire Chinese population.
The toddler was so critically injured, she died in a hospital just a couple of days after the vicious attack. Her assailant, Han Lei, bolted from the area, but police caught him the next day. He stated in the courtroom that he believed he was hurling a shopping cart to the ground. Nevertheless the baby killer was given no mercy.
The defendant’s attorney said Han Lei had not meant to kill the baby, but Beijing’s Intermediate People’s Court sentenced him of murder anyway, giving him the death penalty as his punishment.
