A COURT in southern Guangdong Province was asked to give a light sentence to a university student who killed his father because he could no longer stand being abused, Nanfang Daily reported yesterday.

The 23-year-old identified as A Qiang hacked his father with a butcher's knife more than 20 times on May 6 after the man cursed him and attempted to slash him during a quarrel, the court said.

A Qiang surrendered to police after the attack.

Relatives, friends and his school signed a petition on A Qiang's behalf, asking for a lenient sentence. The court didn't announce a decision.

"I just wanted to injure my father to make him stop," A Qiang told Guangzhou Intermediate People's Court on Thursday. "He said he would slash me and threatened me. He was crazy. I had to do something."

He also told the court he did not regret it.
