More details, via AFP:
Liu, a migrant worker, had recently returned from southern China’s Guangdong province where he had sought employment, the Hongwang report said. He has a history of mental illness, it added.
Among the dead were Liu’s father and several close relatives, it said.
The Hunan killings are the latest family-related murders in China in recent weeks.
Earlier this month, police in southwest China captured a man suspected of murdering his parents and four other relatives after he escaped from a mental hospital in Yunnan province.
In late November, police in the southern Hainan province captured a man suspected of hacking to death his parents, wife, sons and sister in Beijing.
