BEIJING, July 26 (Xinhua) -- Bogu Kailai and Zhang Xiaojun were recently charged with intentional homicide by the Hefei Municipal Procuratorate in Anhui province, Xinhua learned from authorities Thursday.

The municipal prosecuting body filed the charges with the Hefei Municipal Intermediate People's Court.

The prosecuting body informed the two defendants and the family members of the victim of their litigation rights during the investigation period.

The prosecuting body also interrogated the two defendants and heard the opinions of the defense team.

Investigation results show that Bogu Kailai, one of the defendants, and her son surnamed Bo had conflicts with the British citizen Neil Heywood over economic interests. Worrying about Neil Heywood's threat to her son's personal security, Bogu Kailai along with Zhang Xiaojun, the other defendant, poisoned Neil Heywood to death.

The facts of the two defendants' crime are clear, and the evidence is irrefutable and substantial. Therefore, the two defendants should be charged with intentional homicide.

The Hefei Intermediate People's Court has received the case according to law, and will hold a trial on a day to be decided.
