NANNING, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- A policeman was sentenced to death on Monday for shooting and killing a pregnant woman and injuring her husband at a restaurant in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
Guigang Intermediate People's Court sentenced policeman Hu Ping to death for intentional homicide and ordered him to pay compensation of 73,324 yuan (12,091 U.S. dollars) to the victim's family.
An investigation by the local public security bureau showed Hu was drunk when he shot the couple, who ran a rice noodle restaurant, on Oct. 28, 2013. The husband sustained minor injuries to his right shoulder, but the wife and her unborn child died.
Guigang Intermediate People's Court heard the case publicly on Feb. 13.
