The case of 23-year-old Jilin University student surnamed Lee who had intercourse with two women’s corpses after hanging them to death earlier this year has blown up in the media. News reports now say that the man has been charged with intentional homicide, and is being sentenced to death.
Lee, a senior college student, said in reports that he had always had fantasies involving necrophilia. Last spring, had been stressed out about failing too many classes at school, and as a way to “release the stress”, he called a prostitute and had sex with her.
The next morning, he killed the woman by hanging her, then shipped the body back to his home in Changping and had sex with the cadaver, reports say. He then dismembered the the body and buried it in his backyard. A few weeks later, he committed the same crime with another prostitute.
Reporters learned on Friday that the man has now been sentenced to death by the Second Intermediate People’s Court and charged a 80,000 fine to compensate the families.
