Jaime Florcruz shares details on Early Start regarding China’s “Jackie Kennedy” murder trial. Gu Kailai, the wife of a recently deposed top official in the Chinese Communist Party, is accused of poisoning British businessman, Neil Heywood.
Chinese officials report that “economic matters” were at the heart of the matter, and that Gu Kailai poisoned Haywood out of fear that Haywood would harm her son, Bo Guagua.
The trial has been adjourned, and a verdict will come soon. China has a conviction rate of 98%, so most experts expect Gu to be convicted.
