|Scene of the incident|
(Scroll down for video) A man went on a violent killing spree after learning that a man had an affair with his wife, according to police reports.
A man surnamed Zheng, is suspected of killing seven people, including a seven-year-old girl and a woman who was pregnant with twins, in a revenge attack after a man had an affair with his wife.
The attacks took place in the house of a man surnamed Wang, who used to be a friend of Zheng and his partner in crime.
After Zheng served a sentence of one year in prison for burglary, he discovered that his old friend had an affair with his wife.
While discussing the issue, Zheng was upset. Early Sunday morning, Zheng went to the house of Wang in Xuyi County, Jiangsu Province, seeking revenge.
It was reported that Zheng planned to stab Wang in the legs. However, as he was not home at the time, police said that instead, Zheng took a 20 centimeter knife and killed Wang's parents and his daughter, 7 years old, who was visiting for the weekend.
Several neighbors who were alerted to screams of Zheng’s victims, ran to see what was happening and Zheng responded by killing them as well.
He killed a 46-year-old named Li, his wife, his mother-in-law and stepdaughter, who was pregnant with twins. Li was Wang’s uncle, according to police in Yangzhou.
Zheng then went to police in Yangzhou, where he surrendered to police. A more lenient sentence usually occurs to those who surrender to the police. However, this is likely to have little bearing after the magnitude of Zheng’s actions.
