A couple has been executed for killing two children by throwing them from the 15th floor in China. They were executed on Wednesday.
Zhang Bo and Ye Chengchen are accused of killing a two-year-old girl and a one-year-old boy by throwing them from the 15th floor of a residential building in Chongqing, southwest China, AFP reported.
Zhang was the father of those children. She had an extramarital affair with him. But he didn’t know that Zhang had two children.
At one point Ye tells her lover Zhang to kill the children. Because she thought that Zhang could not marry her because of those children. In November 2020, Zhang killed the children by throwing them from the window of the 15th floor building as their mother was not at home.
This incident created criticism in China. Later the court sentenced this couple to death in 2021. Meanwhile, many expressed relief on the news of the couple’s death on the Chinese social media Weibo.
