A man who brutally tortured and murdered his mum so he could buy a flat has been executed.
Fu Bailian, 33, from China, was put to death on Friday after being found guilty of electrocuting and beating his 56-year-old mum to death to cash in on her health insurance.
During his trail in July 2019, a court heard how the defendant attached exposed wires to the 56-year-old's hands and electrocuted her in her own home.
It came after he tricked her into believing her was going to give her a massage.
He then repeatedly hit on the head and face with a wooden stool until she lost consciousness, reports Yahoo.
Her body was later placed on the kitchen floor of the home in Zigong next to a hairdryer plugged into a burned out plug socket before Fu made off.
When his brother informed him of her death later the same day, Fu claimed he was in Guangzhou – 1,500km (932 miles) away.
In a bid to cover his tracks, Fu booked a flight after the murder to make it look as though he had arrived in Zigong after the incident.
However, police launched a murder inquiry after finding blood on her curtains and scratches on a wall.
And CCTV footage placed him in the city before her death, according to local media in 2019.
Court documents revealed Fu had taken a personal accident insurance policy out in his mum's name, worth 400,000 yuan (£44,428), in November 2017 – several months before her murder.
The payout was meant to be used by Fu to buy a new flat, the court was told.

He was also angered by his mum's decision to live 15,00km away from him in Gangzhou in the country's southern region, meaning she could not look after his child.
During his appeal hearing in June last year, Sichuan High People's Court said: “Fu Bailian spent a long time planning the murder, searched online many times for murder methods, tools and insurance claims. He cleaned and staged the crime scene, destroyed and hid evidence, showing he had made sound plans with a resolute mind and deep malice,” the Sichuan High People’s Court ruled in an appeal hearing last year.
“His crime is extremely serious and harmful to society. It cannot be tolerated by the rule of nature, the law of the country and the feelings of people,” the court added.
