The life sentence delivered to a man by the Supreme Court on Thursday for killing a 10-year-old 6752557boy in Tainan City in December 2012 angered the child’s aunt, who has been lobbying death penalty for the perpetrator over the years.

Tseng Wen-chin was arrested on the day he killed the then 10-year-old boy surnamed Fang by slitting his throat in a toilet at a Tom’s World store.

The case outraged Taiwan’s society at that time not only because the victim was an innocent child but also because Tseng said that he didn’t care as “killing one person will not get death penalty” in Taiwan.

Despite prosecutors’ efforts to seek death penalty for Tseng, a local court gave him a life sentence in 2013, which left the child’s father and aunt, Fang Pei-chi, enraged and frustrated. After the court’s deliverance, Fang Pei-chi showed her nephew’s picture outside the court and cried out for justice.     [FULL  STORY]
