A decorator in Taiyuan was kicked to death in broad daylight by his drunken workmate over monetary issues. Victim Huo Xinyuan met murder suspect Wang Mingming through boss Mr. Wu, who gave the pair a decoration work contract. When Wu started to drag on payments, Huo decided to quit, meaning that foreman Wang wouldn’t be paid either. The situation angered Wang, who throttled and pushed Huo to the ground, yelling, “Give me 600,000!”, following which he repeatedly kicked the unconscious Huo in the head. One Netizen defended the witnesses present not helping, asking who would pay the medical bills in case of injury.
