Deng 'used excessive force'

THE bathhouse waitress who killed a township official and injured another used "excessive force" in defending herself against a sexual assault, police said yesterday.

Police have finished their investigation and have referred the case to the local procuratorate, the Public Security Bureau of Enshi Prefecture in Hubei Province.

Waitress Deng Yujiao, 21, fatally stabbed Deng Guida and injured Huang Dezhi, two township officials of Badong County, after she refused to join them in a bath on May 10 at Xiongfeng Hotel's leisure center. The two men pushed and shoved and verbally insulted her, according to the police statement.

The waitress then took up a knife and stabbed the two men, which was "excessive force," the statement said. She called police after the attack and turned herself in.

Deng, who was released on bail last Tuesday, is living with her family under police supervision.

Huang Dezhi, 41, has been sacked from the post of vice director of the township business promotion office, Badong's Communist Party of China Discipline Inspection Committee and the Supervisory Bureau said in a joint statement yesterday. He is also deprived of his Party membership and has been detained in connection with public order offences.

Deng Zhongjia, 45, another vice director of the business promotion office, was also fired as the incident had caused a "bad social effect." The official, who had gone to the bathhouse with Huang and Deng Guida, had not broken any laws or regulations, the statement said.

The leisure center has been shut while its operator is under investigation. The three Dengs are not related.
