Killer of ex-wife gets death sentence for livestream murder that shocked China


Brutal death of social media star Lhamo has shone spotlight on domestic violence in the country

A Chinese man has been sentenced to death after a court found him guilty of killing his former wife while she was livestreaming on social media last year.

The intermediate people’s court of the Aba Tibetan and Qiang ethnic minority autonomous prefecture of Sichuan province said Lhamo, a 30-year-old Tibetan woman, died a little over a year ago in September 2020, after her former husband, Tang Lu, doused her with petrol and set her alight.
