Lawyers say KTV girl was attacked

TWO lawyers for a waitress who killed a government official and injured another in central China's Hubei Province say one of the men had attempted to rape the woman and had torn off her underwear.

Xia Lin and Xia Nan submitted a letter of appeal to the local police at Hubei's Badong County on Monday night detailing what happened before the stabbings, yesterday's Oriental Morning Post reported.

The lawyers, employed by the waitress' mother, Zhang Shumei, to help her daughter, Deng Yujiao, during the police investigation, declined to disclose how they gathered the details.

Badong police said on Sunday the waitress' mother had fired Xia Lin and Xia Nan and hired two Hubei-based lawyers. But Xia Lin and Xia Nan have refused to stop working for Zhang, saying they would continue until Zhang told them personally they had been fired.

Xia Lin published the letter of appeal on his blog on, a popular Chinese Website, detailing what they learned had happened on the night of May 10.

Local government officials Huang Dezhi and Deng Guida went to Xiongfeng Hotel in Badong's Yesanguan Town after drinking wine. Deng had been washing clothes in a spa room in the hotel when Huang broke in to have a spa.

Huang asked Deng Yujiao to join him in a bath but was rejected. Deng Yujiao told him she did not work at the spa but was a waitress with the hotel's karaoke bar.

There was an argument and a fight during which Huang apparently tore Deng Yujiao's panties off.

She tried to escape to a nearby lounge but was followed by Deng Guida. Deng Guida showed money to the girl and demanded sexual services.

The two men grabbed the girl when she was trying to leave and it was then, cornered, that she pulled a knife and stabbed Deng Guida and Huang, according to the letter of appeal.

Deng Guida was killed and Huang was injured. Deng Yujiao immediately called the police and her mother.

Police took Deng Yujiao for questioning and sent her to the local Youfu Hospital on May 12 for psychiatric assessment after they found antidepressants in her handbag.
