Beijing: A man in China has surrendered to the police after allegedly murdering seven relatives of a friend in Jiangsu province, Xinhua reported Monday.
The 32-year-old suspect, surnamed Zheng from Guanyun County, confessed that he used a 20-cm-long knife to kill his friend`s parents, daughter, aunt, uncle, niece and another relative in Xuyi County Saturday night, the Jiangsu provincial department of public security stated.
He surrendered Sunday night, police said.
According to the authorities, Zheng said he wanted to stab his friend, surnamed Wang to take a revenge for an alleged affair Wang had with his wife. But Wang wasn`t home that night.
Zheng and Wang had been friends, and they had collaborated in robberies, which led to Zeng serving one year in jail in 2009. After being released, he learned of the alleged affair.
