Nanjing Court Holds Open Hearing on Murder of German FamilyThe Intermediate People's Court in Nanjing City, the capital of east China's Jiangsu Province, Thursday held a hearing on the murder of a German family by four local youths during a robbery last month.
More than 300 people were in the courtroom to watch the proceedings, including Kurt Leonberger, the German Consul General to Shanghai, and a number of Chinese and foreign journalists.
Along with judges from the intermediate court, also present at the hearing were the public prosecutors, the four accused and their attorneys, as well as the Chinese attorneys hired by the relatives of the German victims.
The defendants are Zhong Weiyang, 20; Liu Guangyuan, 18; Ding Shanyang, 21; and Zhang Eryang, 20; who are all from Shuyang County, Jiangsu, 250 km north of the provincial capital.
According to the public prosecutor of the Nanjing People's Procuratorate, at midnight on April 1, the defendants broke into the Nanjing residence of the Pfrang family, including Jurgen Hermann Pfrang, 50, and his 40-year-old wife, Petra Pfrang, and their two children, daughter Sandra Melanie Pfrang, 15, and 13- year-old son Thorsten Oliver Pfrang.
Prosecutors said the defendants fatally stabbed all four members of the Pfrang family.
Jurgen Hermann Pfrang was deputy general manager of Yaxing Benz Ltd., a Sino-German joint venture bus manufacturer based in Yangzhou City, Jiangsu.
