BEIJING, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- A man who killed a two-year-old girl by throwing her to the ground was sentenced to death by a Beijing court on Wednesday.
The Beijing No. 1 Intermediate People's Court handed the death sentence to Han Lei, 39, on charges of intentional homicide.
According to the details of the case, Han grabbed the girl from her carriage and hurled her to the ground in the Daxing District of Beijing on July 23 after an argument with the toddler's mother over a parking space.
Han fled the scene but was captured the next day.
The girl was severely injured and died days later despite treatment.
Han said at the court on Wednesday that he would appeal the sentence.
Prosecutors recommended that Han, who committed the crime within a year of being released from prison, be given the death sentence.
