Defendant dies of heart failure

XUHUI District People's Court have abandoned a criminal case because the defendant died of heart disease before the hearing.

On November 29, 2007, a local man surnamed Meng, 30, allegedly poured petrol on his father and set him on fired, following a dispute about property rights. Meng's father suffered serious burns. Meng was charged with attempted murder. The court planned to hear the case late last month but Meng died from heart failure. He had received a heart transplant a few years ago.
