China patient murders his doctor, gets death penalty

BEIJING--A Chinese court sentenced to death Monday a patient who fatally stabbed a doctor over what he considered a botched nose operation, state media reported, in a case spotlighting China's overburdened health system.

Lian Enqing, 33, killed an ear, nose and throat specialist and injured two others because he “felt displeased with his nose and claimed to be suffering respiratory problems,” the Xinhua state news agency said.

“While the hospital confirmed that the surgery was successful, Lian felt he was being cheated by the doctors,” it cited Lian's sister as saying.
