A Chinese man has been arrested after beating his wife to death. The man left his wife with serious head injuries because she had cracked the screen of his smartphone.
People’s Daily Online reports that the woman, surnamed Chen, was found dead on September 15 at her home in the city of Yinchuan, China’s Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.
The 28-year-old suspect, surnamed Su, has been arrested by the Yinchuan police after a city-wide manhunt. The suspect Su did not have a steady job and stayed at home all the time, said the police. Before her death, the couple were heard having a seriuos fight.
It was gathered that the man killed the wife after he left home in the morning; and when he returned, he found the screen of his smartphone cracked. Thinking that the wife who had complained of his addiction to smartphones broke the screen, the man descended on the wife.
Officers said the female victim had been repeatedly struck in the head by a blunt object, leading to the death. A blood-stained wooden stick was found at the murder scene.
