Killer Cops: last suspect in notorious police murder on trial in central China

ZHENGZHOU, Dec. 29 (Xinhua) -- A court on Wednesday held a trial for a former policewoman, the last of the six police officers, for a murder that rocked the nation seven years ago.

Wang Haiyu was indicted in Fugou County People's Court in Henan province for murdering a man together with seven others, including five police officers, while working at a local police station in the city of Zhoukou in 2004.

According to the indictment, Lv Liusheng, who worked in the local court, asked the six officers and another man to help him exact revenge on Li Shengli, who had a conflict with Lv's family. The eight severely beat Li in the police station and then threw him out of a third-floor window in an attempt to conceal the murder as a suicide.

Wang said she didn't participate in the murder, but threatened a high school student who had witnessed Li's beating -- demanding the student keep quiet.

The court has not yet produced a verdict.

Prior to Wang's trial, the six others involved have received sentences ranging from the death penalty to prison terms. Wang Haiyu and another police officer, Zhang San, remained at large until this month.

The Shanan Branch of the Zhoukou Public Security Bureau, which administrates Wang's former police station, has paid nearly 593,000 yuan (94,000 U.S. dollars) in compensation to the victim's family.
