Guilty: Anxiang Du whose rage killed family four
A businessman who "massacred" a family of four has finally been brought to justice after a series of police mistakes allowed him to go on the run for more than a year.
Anxiang Du (54) stabbed Manchester Metropolitan University lecturer Jifeng 'Jeff' Ding, his wife Ge 'Helen' Chui, and their two daughters, Xing 'Nancy' (18) and Alice (12) to death on April 29, 2011, in revenge after losing a 10-year legal battle.
He had been left "angry, humiliated and facing financial ruin" after losing a legal battle over a Chinese herbal medicine business he and his wife had owned with the Dings.
The loss had left him owing £88,000 in court costs.
Yesterday a jury took just over three hours to unanimously convict him of four counts of murder.
