BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese bride burnt her new husband to death
after he got into bed after a drunken argument without washing his
feet, state media reported on Wednesday.
"Wang and his wife, Luo, were married on February 2. The couple,
however, frequently fought over trivial things while still on their
honeymoon," the official Xinhua news agency quoted a local newspaper
The couple, from the central province of Hubei, had another fight on
the night of March 4, "and in frustration they together drank a
bottle of liquor to ease their anger".
"At about 10 p.m., Luo watched her husband get into bed without
cleaning or washing his feet. In a fit of anger and intoxication,
she set fire to the sheet he was sleeping in," the report said.
"When he awoke, the two began fighting before a very drunk Wang
collapsed. As fire engulfed the bedroom. Luo escaped to the living
room, leaving her other half to burn," it added.
The woman has been arrested, Xinhua said.
