Man executed for using the Net

Murdered mum after e-ticking-off

A 22-year-old unemployed man has been executed for murdering his foster mother after she chastised him for using the Internet too much.

Zhao Jieqi, who lived in east China's Zhejiang Province, stole 2900 Yuan (£240) from his foster mother so he could fund his online activities at cybercafes.

When she found out about the money she gave him a "good dressing down", according to the Xinhua News Agency.

It was then that Zhao decided to poison his foster mother. According to the report, she died a long and painful death.

Afterwards, Zhao hid her body and told friends she had moved out of town to work as a housemaid.

Zhao's father found his wife's body six weeks later hidden in a chest of drawers. ®
