Student gets jail for stabbing mom

A local student who stabbed his mother nine times during a dispute at Pudong International Airport was sentenced to three years and six months in jail for intentional injury this morning.

Wang Jiajing, 23, was diagnosed with schizophrenia. The court ruled that he had the ability to control himself during the attack, but he chose not to.

The attack took place at around 9pm on March 31 after Wang had returned on a flight from Tokyo, where he was studying, and was met by his mother, surnamed Gu, at Terminal 2 of Pudong Airport.

The pair argued when Gu told Wang she could no longer afford his study fees. Wang then pulled a knife from his bag and stabbed his mother nine times.

Gu cried in court when the verdict was announced, and said she would appeal to the higher court to get Wang's sentence reduced.
