Prosecutors In China Charge Man With Rape And Murder Of 19 Women

According to Chinese officials, Gu Guangfan launched a two-year killing spree targeting prostitutes in 1997 to avenge his 1989-rape conviction. "Not only did he not think about repenting, he held a woman responsible for his jail time and gradually came to hate all women," reports the Procuratorial Daily. Gu Guangfan was apprehended after he murdered the 19th woman in September 1999.
