A man threw his two children off the 15th floor of a building so he could live with his lover and start a new family. The case was registered in 2020, in China. The man and his lover were executed on Wednesday (31), for the murder of the children.
Zhang Bo and lover Ye Cheng Chen died by lethal injection after China’s top court recently approved their death sentences.
Zhang was convicted of throwing her two children out of the window, Ye was also convicted after the court ruled that she forced Zhang to kill the children.
The victims identified as Zhang Ruixue, a 2-year-old girl, and Zhang Yangrui, a 1-year-old boy, were killed because the woman saw them as an “obstacle”. She even helped stage their deaths as an accidental fall.
The pair were sentenced to death in 2021, but were only executed this week after a lengthy appeals process that resulted in a second trial.
At the time, Zhang claimed he was asleep when the children “fell” and said he woke up to people screaming.
