Inmate admits to unsolved killings

A newly jailed prisoner confessed to a murder case that happened two years ago in the city's Minhang District under the guidance of a prison guard who persuaded him to surrender in their daily talks.

The criminal, named Sun Qi, was sentenced to 10 years and three months in prison after he was convicted of robbery in October 2009. He was jailed in a prison for new prisoners in Qingpu District.

In June 2010, Sun became one of the 15 prisoners under the mentorship of Wang Yuwei, the prison guard. During their first routine talk, Wang noticed Sun seemed depressed. "He was experiencing a tough time fighting with himself," said Wang.

Two weeks later, Sun confessed to having killed a mother and son a year earlier in Qibao Town in Minhang District. The unsolved slayings occurred just days before the robbery.

Sun told the guard that he and a man named Fu Qiang were hired to collect debts from a man named Yamamoto. He said he and Fu ended up robbing Yamamoto and killing him and his mother, dismembering their bodies and packing the pieces into two luggage boxes.

Sun told the guard they then threw away the bodies at his parents' home in Anhui Province. Sun continued to commit crimes and was captured for robbery after he broke into an acquaintance's home and committed a kidnapping.

Police said Sun and Fu were now under criminal detention for the slayings. Fu was captured in a cyber cafe.
