Xinhua,December 31, 2017 Adjust font size:

SHENYANG, Dec. 31 (Xinhua) -- A court in northeast China has sentenced a man to death for molesting and murdering two young girls.

Li Fugang has been convicted of homicide and molesting children, deprived of his political rights for life, and ordered to pay compensation of more than 37,000 yuan (5,687 U.S. dollars), according to the Intermediate People's Court of Dalian City, Liaoning Province.

In June, the disappearance of the two victims in Dalian sparked a large manhunt for the suspect. Li, 36, was caught at home.

He had previously served a 15-year jail sentence. An investigation found that Li seduced the girls, taking them to his house before molesting and killing them. Enditem
