A man drove his kids to church while his wife’s dead body was in the trunk of his car, according to reports.
A man who killed his wife during a custody dispute, drove around for two days with her body in his truck while he took his two sons to Burnaby Mountain in Canada, and to church.
Zhongming Mou, 36, was charged with first-degree murder in the strangulation death of Yating Hu, 27, in July 2011, after her body was found by fishermen on the Fraser River near Steveston, where he had thrown her body inside a suitcase two days after he killed her.
The couple was involved in a nasty custody battle over their two children, now three and four-years-old, before she was killed.
Mou admitted to the murder to undercover officers, confessed to police, and the charge was reduced to murder in the second degree.
Both first and second degree murder carry a life sentence, but parole eligibility for 1st degree comes only after a minimum of 25 years, while in the second degree it is 10 to 25 years.
Prosecutors asked a judge on Tuesday, to keep Mou in jail for 15 to 20 years before he can apply for parole in order to deter others.
