On July 9, 2005, after killing his factory supervisor, A-xing, accompanied by reporters from this paper, turned himself in to the authorities. The A-Xing murder case and the subsequent murder case of worker Wang Binyu aroused widespread interest. In the coming days, the A-Xing murder case will be tried in the Shantou, Guangdong court. (This is a follow-up to a story first reported on in the July 14, 2005 edition.)*
When the judge hit the gavel, the defendants, A-Xing (full name, Bi Wenxing) and his brother A-Hai (charged with concealing and protecing A-Xing) sat up a little straighter in their seats.
On the morning of March 7th, the much anticipated murder trial of worker, A-Xing began at the middle court of Shantou, Guangdong.
