Plumber held for murder

A plumber has been detained on suspicion of murder after he allegedly killed his coworker and left the body in a waste water tank on the roof of a residential complex in Minhang District, police said last night.

The suspect, Wang Zehai, allegedly hit and killed the victim, surnamed Yu, with a hammer after luring him up to the roof of a complex in Huabao residential area on Tuesday, police said.

Yu is said to have given Wang 10,000 yuan (US$1,502) to buy a sewage pump, but Wang did not actually make the purchase, said yesterday. The money was allegedly used to pay off Wang's gambling debts.

Wang was quickly apprehended on the day of the discovery, said police officer Hou -Jianhua last night.
