Hou Shichao, the lawyer of the victim’s side, told the Beijing news that the intermediate people’s Court of Yichun City, Jiangxi Province, sentenced Zeng Chunliang to death for several crimes and deprived him of his political rights for life. Hou said the sentencing process was very short, and Zeng Chunliang said in court that he would not appeal. In addition, Hou Shichao said that Zeng Chunliang was wearing protective clothing and face mask today, so he could not see his facial expression clearly.
According to the judgment of the first instance, the defendant Zeng Chunliang was sentenced to death for intentional homicide and deprived of political rights for life; for robbery, he was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment and a fine of 10000 yuan; for theft, he was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment and a fine of 10000 yuan. To sum up, the intermediate people’s Court of Yichun City in Jiangxi Province decided to execute Zeng Chunliang, deprive him of his political rights for life, and impose a fine of 20000 yuan.
In addition, the judgment shows that according to the psychiatric forensic opinion issued by Jiangxi psychiatric forensic Institute on September 29, 2020, the defendant Zeng Chunliang was in a normal mental state when he committed the crime, and his identification ability and control ability were complete, which was assessed as full criminal responsibility ability.
At about 10:00 on January 11, Miss Kang, the victim’s family member, told the Beijing news that today’s family member did not attend the court to hear the verdict, “I feel it is very painful to see this kind of indifferent animal.” In addition, Hou Shichao said that based on the physical and mental harm caused by the suspect Zeng Chunliang to the family members of the victims, the family members’ appeal before the first court session was that the court should sentence Zeng Chunliang to death and file a civil compensation of 1.593 million yuan.
After the first hearing, the family members of the victims have withdrawn part of their civil claims. “The family members of the victims entrusted me to file a civil lawsuit at that time. First, they expressed their attitude, and second, they increased their participation. Participating in the trial can protect the family members of the victims and fully exercise their litigation rights in the trial. Our purpose is not to make compensation, so after the first hearing, the family members took the initiative to withdraw the lawsuit. “
