The Chinese court has sentenced a kindergarten teacher to death for poisoning 23 children. One of those children has died.
The kindergarten teacher was arrested last year after children at a kindergarten in the Chinese city of Jiaozuo had to be rushed to hospital. That happened right after they had their morning porridge.
According to the court, the kindergarten teacher would have put sodium nitrate in the breakfast of the students in March last year. That substance can be toxic in large quantities.
She did not do this with her own students, but with those of her colleagues. In a statement, the kindergarten teacher said that she did this because she wanted to take revenge over an argument they had about the way of leadership.
Just after the children ate their breakfast, 23 started vomiting and passing out. One of the children died in January after having been hospitalized for ten months.
Soon, the kindergarten teacher was charged with poisoning, so the police started an investigation.
Sentenced to death
The court called the kindergarten teacher “despicable and mean” and stated that the consequences of her crimes were so unusually serious that she deserves to be severely punished. She was sentenced to death on Monday. Punishment is carried out by firing squad or lethal injection.
Not the first time
This was not the first time that the woman had poisoned people. She once bought nitrite online and poisoned her husband with it. He sustained minor injuries.
