A man surnamed Tang has been charged by a local court in Sichuan province for killing his wife in a sadomaschistic game.
One evening in February 2011, after they had had a couple of drinks outside and gone home, Tang began choking his wife’s neck with his right hand in an S&M session that was to go horribly wrong. Although they had prior agreements that Tang would stop whenever his wife grabbed his right hand, Tang was hallucinating and only saw a horrible-looking devil. He started choking his wife with both hands and finally suffocated her.
At the time of the crime, Tang had just finished a seven year prison sentence and was under probation. In fear of an even longer jail term, he drove his wife’s corpse from Sichuan province all the way to Shaanxi province and dumped her there.
It wasn’t until November last year when Tang decided to surrender himself to police. He has since been charged with homicide. The case is still pending.
