Chinese court rejects plea of `most wanted`

A Chinese court has rejected an appeal filed by a most wanted criminal who had been sentenced to death for murder, robbery and rape.



Beijing: A Chinese court has rejected an
appeal filed by a most wanted criminal who had been sentenced
to death for murder, robbery and rape.

The Foshan Municipal Intermediate People`s Court in
south China`s Guangdong province yesterday upheld the death
sentence of Cheng Ruilong without reprieve, state-run Xinhua
news agency reported today.

However, the court reduced the number of murder
victims in his case from 13 to 11, as the bodies of a woman
and her daughter allegedly killed by Cheng were never found,
the report said.

Cheng, 37, who used various aliases, was found to have
committed a series of violent crimes in several provinces in
southern and eastern China between May 1996 and January 2005.

The murder victims included three police officers.
Listed as one of the top wanted suspects by the
Ministry of Public Security, Cheng was arrested in 2005.

He was sentenced to death by Foshan`s intermediate court in
February 2010.
