 A Chinese student in University of Utah was sentenced to life imprisonment after being shot by a Chinese student.


Austin Butan, 24, pleaded guilty to charges of killing Guo Chen-wei, a 23-year-old Chinese student, and kidnapping. The judge said that if he did not plead guilty and the case entered the court, prosecutors would seek death penalty. He also faces charges of killing another man in Colorado.

He said in court that knowing sorry doesnt mean anything, but he is really sorry. Prosecutor Collins said that for Guo Chen-weis parents from Beijing, Guo Chen-wei was a perfect son.

His wife also faces a number of criminal charges. However, she has not yet made a response to pleading guilty.

In October 2017, Butan and his wife killed a 63-year-old man in Colorado and fled to Utah to set up a tent in a canyon near the University of Utah. The indictment stated that he and his wife decided to hijack the car to Tennessee. After searching for a lot of time, his wife left. He then went to Guo Chenweis car and knocked on the window to see if he had seen his wife. Guo Chenwei and a female friend in the car did not respond. He was furious. Guo Chenwei shot his neck and died. Source: China News Net editor: Cao Yi _NN5778
