Caregiver gets death

BEIJING: A Chinese caregiver found guilty of killing her elderly patient in order to receive her salary early — and who claimed to have killed seven more — was sentenced to death on Wednesday, state media said. He Tiandai, 46, admitted murdering her client, a 70-year-old woman. Prosecutors did not press charges over her other confessions due to a lack of evidence, the official news agency Xinhua said. The victim’s daughter-in-law had promised He a full month’s wage in the event of her patient’s death regardless of how many days she had worked, according to reports. After only four days of looking after the patient, she fed the woman broth spiked with sleeping pills and toxic chemicals, injected the potion into her belly and buttocks and finally garrotted her with a nylon rope. He said she would not appeal her sentence, Xinhua reported.
