Death for hurling toddler to ground
A man has been sentenced to death for killing a toddler by hurling her to the ground in an argument with her mother over a parking space.
Han Lei, 39, grabbed the two-year-old from her pram and threw her to the ground in Beijing in an incident that horrified the Chinese public.
The girl was severely injured and died days later in a hospital. Han fled the scene but police caught him the following day.
The Beijing No 1 Intermediate People's Court sentenced Han to death, and a second man who drove him away from the scene was given five years for attempting to cover up a crime.
