Woman Kills Abusive Husband, 256 Petition For Reduced Sentence

Li Ping, a woman from Hunan, is currently on trial for the killing of her husband last year. The pair had a history of quarrelling, but last year, one August evening, things escalated and a physical altercation ensued. As her husband charged her, fearing for her life, she reached out and grabbed a fruit knife off a nearby cabinet. The man ran into the knife, later dying from his wounds. The local community had a very strong response to the case, with 256 people, including members of the deceased husband’s family, petitioning the court to give the Li a light sentence.
