This month, a boy allegedly “hacked” his mother to death with a cleaver after she killed his pet dog. According to the Daily Mail, the shocking incident took place in China’s Jiangsu province on March 16.
The 13-year-old boy, identified as Shao, allegedly attacked and killed his 37-year-old mother, Yang Yan, after she threw his dog to its death in front of him.
A person familiar with the family described the victim as a “strict mother” and recounted how the tragic incident allegedly unfolded:
The boy loved playing with his pet all day long, so the angry mother threw it to its death in front of him.
After the authorities found Yang’s body, they searched for the boy – later finding him at a 24-hour restaurant where he had been sitting for over a day. The boy was taken into custody, but under Chinese law, he is too young to be held criminally responsible, reports Meaww news.
