China's 'Jack the Ripper' sentenced to death: state TV
BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese court sentenced a 54-year-old man dubbed the country's "Jack the Ripper" to death on Friday for the rape and murder of 11 women and girls over the course of 14 years, state television reported.
Gao Chengyong, 54, was tried for multiple counts of homicide, rape, robbery and mutilation of corpses, according to the state television's English channel.
He admitted to killing the 11 people between 1988 and 2002 in northwest China's Baiyin city in Gansu Province and Baotou city in the northern region of Inner Mongolia, the report said. The youngest of the victims was eight years old.
At least they will actually execute him in a timely fashion.

OK, so he admits to the murders. In China, this doesn't mean a free ride, i.e. a life sentence behind bars. Justice is swift in China. Good for them!
China even copies our serial killer labels?
Americans believe he's innocent.
