Man kills 17 more people to cover up previous killing of 2 persons

A man identified as Yang Qingpei has admitted the killing of 19 people, including parents and children during a court hearing in Southwest China on wednesday.


The 28yr old revealed he murdered his parents after returning to his home village in Yunnan province on September 28 last year,due to their refusal to give him money, the Qujing City Intermediate People’s Court said on its official microblog account.

In fear of being outted, Yang killed 17 of his neighbours and fled to Yunnan’s provincial capital Kunming, it said, adding that the murder weapon was a pickaxe.

Yang, who was born in 1989, pleaded guilty to all charges and apologised to the relatives of the dead, it added.

The court adjourned Wednesday afternoon for sentencing.

While mass killings are rare, violent crime has been on the rise in China in recent decades as the economy has boomed and the gap between rich and poor has expanded rapidly.

Studies have also described a rise in the prevalence of mental disorders, some of them linked to stress, as the pace of life becomes faster and support systems wither.
