Man sentenced to death for holding women in sex dungeon

A Chinese man was sentenced to death Friday for holding six women as sex slaves in an underground lair and ordering the deaths of two of them, state media reported.

A court in Luoyang city convicted Li Hao on charges of murder, rape, organized prostitution, illegal detention and selling pornography, state-run Xinhua said.

    Yeah. But what former American president and his family/cohorts mad money by supplying oil to this Chinaman? Surely, Bush'O'bama are accomplices.

      What? I don't even understand what your comment means – keep politics out of this. It isn't relevant.

      Why do you have to use a racial slur in response to the story? Do you have to insult everyone involved in the story now, even the women? What a shameful, lowly person you are.

      we should start adopting the Chinese legal system, that way, we don't spend too much tax $$$ feeding and caring for criminals that deserves to die from the getgo. better to spend these tax $$$ on our education system, transportation, infrastructure, etc.

      @Clearyeye1, what do you mean, turncoat? Are you referring too the truth that American prisons by comparison are like country clubs compared to the rest of the world? Criminals who are convicted don't deserve better treatment than people living on the streets or in abusive homes. Its called prison for a reason.

      True that. He'll get several beatings, survive on lukewarm gruel and be begging for death by the time it comes (which won't be long).

      At least when China takes over the USA, our serial killers will be dealt with properly.

      let us not forget the wonderful job the US dept of Corrections does in returning reformed and fit individuals to society. Yes a model for the rest of the world to follow. The return on investment is so clear . At least $50,000 per year to take care of and coddle the cream of our society......

      Costas only reflects what a majority of Americans believe. He was also right.

      Bob Costas is a hypocrite. Why didn't he speak out about the evils of alcohol or cars when the NFL players were involved in the wreck? Because he is a typical liberal. An uninformed moron who can only repeat talking points from CNN and MSNBC.

      @Gino: Pretty funny statement after all you are doing is repeating talking points from FauxNews and the NRA.

      You know the difference between guns, alcohol and cars? Two of them have a primary purpose that doesn't involve killing someone. Those same two are harder to get thru licensing or age requirements.

    Another gun shooting today. Too many guns in this county. We should BAN them from everyone except law enforcement.

      Mr."Lee", It is " law" enforcement that programs the assassins to shoot innocents to further curtail the right to bear arms and increase the New World Order's power over us. The greatest military weapon of modern times is CONTROL OF THE HUMAN MIND, and it sure worked on you! Furthermore, the REAL Geddy Lee sings songs glorifying freedom, not totalitarianism, so you ain't him........

      That's the dumbest thing I have seen in reply to all this. If someone wants to kill they will find away. Revoking rights won't solve the problem of this Godless nation.

      In all the righteous discussion about gon-control where is the discourse about the video game scene, the horror show industry, paintball–all simulated killing, dispassionate shooting...look at what your kids are playing and watching and doing!

      Geddy, get a life, no really, I mean that, talking to crazies on the internet, or trying to reason with them, will only drive you crazy like them. Get out while you can. (And yes there is irony here).

    I'm sure if we ban guns people with bad intentions wouldn't get them. Riiiiggght......

    And when they do get them and break into your house, you can bring your knife to the gunfight.

    That is the one thing I like about China...while I'm sure innocent people are convicted from time to time (as they are here) in general, their justice is swift and sure.
