Beijing: A high school student in north China`s Shanxi province was sentenced to life for killing a nine-year-old girl, a court said Saturday.

The trial was not open to public as the defendant was juvenile and thus protected by a privacy shield, reported Xinhua.

According to a court statement, the defendant, surnamed Lyu, kidnapped the victim in December 2012, molested and killed her.

Lyu surrendered after 10 days.

The Intermediate People`s Court in the city of Xinzhou said the crimes committed were so hideous that no mitigation was offered.
