Chinese man who murdered elderly woman says he committed the crime because he 'wanted to die'

(CHINA DAILY/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A 21-year-old man has been sentenced to death, suspended for two years, for the murder of an elderly woman - a crime he says he committed because he wanted to die. Pei, as he was identified by police, was born in 1990 to a poor family in Hebei province. Detectives say he killed his victim in a village in Qingdao, Shandong province, on April 11, and was detained five days later. On his capture, he said he planned the crime so that a court would sentence him to death. Investigations found Pei went to Shandong to work as a migrant worker when he was 18 years old and had little contact with his parents, who divorced in 2008 and paid him no attention.
