A man stood trial Tuesday in Shanghai for allegedly killing a cab driver last year in New Zealand.

Xiao Zhen, a 25-year-old Shanghai native, is suspected to have stabbed the driver with a knife after a quarrel in Auckland on January 31 last year while he was studying there, according to a written statement issued by the No. 2 Intermediate People's Court in Shanghai Municipality.

The driver, Hiren Mohini, died after being stabbed in his heart, the statement said.

Xiao left New Zealand for Shanghai in the following month and was caught by police last June in Baoshan District.

The court did not announce a verdict on Tuesday.

According to Chinese law, Chinese citizens who have allegedly violated Chinese law out of Chinese territory must also be charged.
