Man ‘killed friend for nagging’

A MAN has been held by police in connection with the murder of a family friend, allegedly because she was nagging at him to make peace with his wife and son.

The 50-year-old, surnamed Qi, is said to have killed the woman, surnamed Wang, in his hometown in neighboring Zhejiang Province this month.

Qi then brought Wang’s body to Shanghai and buried her next to a highway, police said yesterday.

Police say Qi told them that he killed Wang because she had been urging him to reunite with his family.

Qi is said to be estranged from his wife, who lives in Italy, and have fallen out with his son over wedding costs.

Police also said that Qi had borrowed money from Wang.

According to police, Qi drove from Shanghai on February 1 and met with Wang in Yongjia County to take a trip to a Buddhist site.

But police said Qi had already decided to kill Wang and had dug a grave in woodland by a highway in Jiuting Town in Songjiang District, where he lives.

According to police, Qi strangled Wang in his car, left her mobile phone at a tomb on a mountain, then drove back to Shanghai and buried her body.

Then Qi is said to have rushed back to Yongjia and helped Wang’s husband search for his wife and accompanied him to report her missing.

Police said they were suspicious of Qi, and that under questioning he admitted the murder.

The next day, Qi took police to the spot where Wang’s body was buried.

When her body was removed, police said Qi knelt down and wept and said, “We’re coming to take you home.”
