 The Court of Appeal for Life Family Members of Middle School Students in Case of Rape and Murder will be scheduled for hearing


The Beijing News reported earlier that on January 10, 2005, a case of female students being sexually assaulted and killed occurred in Linyi, Shandong Province. On the same day, a female body was found in a mens toilet of Linshu No. 2 Middle School in Shandong Province. Police investigation identified the deceased as Zhang Yuan, a girl who disappeared a month ago.

Police investigation found that Zhang Zhichao, a 16-year-old middle school student, was suspected of committing a crime and arrested him. In March 2006, the Linyi Intermediate Court of Shandong Province made a first instance judgment, found that Zhang Zhichao was convicted of rape and sentenced him to life imprisonment.

After the judgment came into effect, Zhang Zhichaos family continued to appeal against the time of the crime and the evidence on the spot. In November 2017, the Supreme Court made a retrial decision. After examination, the Supreme Court held that the fact that Zhang Zhichao raped to death and Wang Guangchao sheltered was unclear in the original judgment. There were contradictions between the main evidence. It decided to instruct Shandong Provincial High Court to form a collegial panel to retrial the case. On February 8, 2018, Shandong Provincial High Court formed a collegial panel to retrial Zhang Zhichaos case.

Today (October 12) morning, Zhang Zhichaos case held a pre-trial meeting in Shandong Provincial High Court. Wang Dianshue, Zhang Zhichaos lawyer, introduced that the pre-trial meeting mainly examined three aspects: first, the jurisdiction of Shandong Provincial High Court; second, whether the litigation participants applied for withdrawal from the members of the retrial panel; and third, the submission of new evidence.
