 The defendant Chen Jianli was sentenced to death at first instance in the second trial of Laiwu Killing Medical Cases

According to Shandong Gaofa News, on May 9 at 1400, Shandong Provincial High Court opened a public hearing in the Criminal Trial Chamber of Laiwu District Court of Jinan City to hear the case of Appellant Chen Jianlis intentional homicide.

The former Laiwu Intermediate Court made a first instance judgment on July 27, 2018. It was found that on January 19, 2016, the daughter of the defendant Chen Jianli was born in Laiwu Iron and Steel Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Laiwu Iron and Steel Group Hospital). On the 20th day, she developed fever symptoms and was transferred to the pediatric ward of the hospital on the 21st. On the same day, she died of ineffective medical treatment. Chen Jianli believed that there were problems in the diagnosis and treatment of Laiwu Iron and Steel Hospital. He repeatedly asked the hospital for compensation but failed. He resented Li Baohua, the chief doctor of the hospital and pediatrics, and then premeditated to kill Li Baohua.

At 8 oclock on October 3, 2016, Chen Jianli rushed to Laigang Hospital to buy a single-edged machete on the way. In the pediatricians lounge on the fifth floor of the surgical building of Laiwu Iron and Steel Hospital, Chen Jianli took advantage of Li Baohuas telephone call and slashed Li Baohuas thirteen knives on the head with a machete, resulting in his skull smashed, brain burst and instant death.

Accordingly, the court of First Instance sentenced Chen Jianli to death for intentional homicide, depriving him of political rights for life. After the sentence was pronounced, the defendant Chen Jianli refused to accept and appealed.

In the trial of the second instance, the court investigated whether Chen Jianli constituted intentional homicide; whether Chen Jianli constituted surrender; whether the sentencing of the original trial decision was appropriate and so on. It listened to Chen Jianlis defense, the defenders defense opinion, the agents opinion and the procurators opinion in court, and questioned the new evidence provided by the prosecution.

After the trial, the court adjourned, and the case will be adjudicated on an optional date.
