Shihlin prosecutors requested that 29-year-old Kung Chung-an (龔重安) be taken into custody, a day after he entered Wenhua Elementary School in the suburban district of Beitou and slit the throat of an 8-year-old girl.
The girl, identified only by her surname Liu, was pronounced dead at 10:43 a.m.
Liu showed no vital signs by the time she arrived at the Taipei Veterans General Hospital, the hospital said. She had a 10-centimeter cut to her neck with a severed trachea and carotid artery, the hospital said. [FULL STORY]
