A Chinese woman who killed her abuse husband was sentence to death
Li Yan quarrelled with her drunken husband on the night of November 3, 2010. He threatened to shoot her in the buttocks with an air rifle while she was washing dishes at their home, and then began kicking her.
Li then hit her husband twice with another gun that she had grabbed from nearby, accidentally killing him.She dismembered his corpse, throwing most of his body parts in a public toilet and a dyke.
Li was sentenced to death by the Ziyang Intermediate People's Court and lost her appeal at the Sichuan Higher People's Court in August. The Supreme People's Court authorised her execution this month.
More than 400 lawyers and women's rights activists have sent a petition letter to the Supreme People's Court
