Jail escapees charged with murder, kidnap

THREE prisoners who allegedly killed a guard, broke out of prison, and sparked a nationwide manhunt in north China have been charged with murder, robbery, kidnapping, and theft.

Prosecutors in Hohhot City of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region issued the charges against Dong Jijia, Qiao Haiqiang, and Li Hongbing this morning, reported the Procuratorial Daily today.

Dong, Qiao, and Li broke out of Hohhot No.2 Prison of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on October 17, sparking a nationwide manhunt.

The three were arrested in a nearby village after a villager tipped police off when they asked him for water. Another escapee named Gao Bo was fatally shot in the head after he refused to surrender when cornered by police on October 20.

During their capture, Qiao Haiqiang also tried to kill himself with his homemade knife but failed.

Local police announced later that Dong and Qiao confessed that they were the masterminds behind the jailbreak.

The four allegedly stabbed a prison guard 56 times until he was dead. They used his door key and uniform to get past four security gates while knocking out another guard.
