Jailhouse bully executed

A JAILHOUSE bully was executed on Tuesday over the death of a cellmate in 2006.

Jiaozuo Intermediate People's Court in Henan Province carried out the death sentence against Jiang Zhenhai after it received final approval by the Supreme People's Court.

Jiang, 38, was found to be the principal in the torture and killing of teenager Yang Sen at a detention center in Jiaozuo City of Henan Province on November 30, 2006, the Henan Business Daily reported yesterday.

Jiang was jailed for two years on June 23, 2006, for illegal confinement.

Jiang's bullying at the detention center of Jiaozuo's police department included ordering fellow prisoners to take cold showers and plunging their heads into urinals, authorities said.

Yang refused to take cold showers and was beaten by Jiang and four accomplices by turns.

The beatings eventually led to Yang's death.

The Jiaozuo court sentenced Jiang to death with a two-year reprieve on August 30, 2007. His four accomplices received fixed-term jail sentences.

However, Henan Provincial Higher People's court ordered a retrial and Jiang this time received a death sentence without reprieve.
