Student gets jail term for killing in suicide attempt

A UNIVERSITY student was sentenced to three years' prison for accidentally killing a woman when he landed on her while trying to commit suicide by jumping from his 7th floor dormitory in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, Southern Metropolis Daily reported yesterday.

Deng Guowang, a student at Guangdong Pharmaceutical University, was given a four-year reprieve after Guangzhou Intermediate People's Court heard his appeal.

Deng tried to commit suicide on September 3, 2007, after the industrial and commercial watchdog investigated him for forging company seals and documents.

Deng landed on a younger student surnamed Yang, killing her. He was injured.

In the trial of first instance, Deng agreed to give Yang's family 474,474 yuan (US$69,449) compensation, but appealed the 3.5-year sentence handed out by Panyu District People's Court. Deng was also convicted for forging company seals and documents by the intermediate court.

Deng was responsible for organizing a small carnival for a trading company in Guangzhou University Town in August 2007, but he didn't have the proper documents to get approval to host the public activity, so Deng forged the Guangzhou-based Feisheng Media Co's seals and documents.
