Man guilty of second-degree murder for killing, dismembering ex-girlfriend

A Toronto man has been found guilty of second-degree murder for killing his ex-girlfriend, cutting up her body and scattering the pieces.

BRAMPTON, Ont. — A Toronto man has been found guilty of second-degree murder for killing his ex-girlfriend, cutting up her body and scattering the pieces.

A jury in Brampton, Ont., has convicted Chun Qi Jiang in the death of 41-year-old Guang Hua Liu, whose body parts were found in several Toronto-area locations in August 2012.

The conviction comes with an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for between 10 and 25 years.

During the four-week trial, prosecutors said Jiang killed Liu, with whom he had an on-again-off-again relationship, after she rejected him for another man.

But the defence said it was Jiang’s 66-year-old mother who fatally stabbed and dismembered Liu in a fit of rage, while her son simply helped cover up the gruesome crime.

Court heard Liu’s head and body showed more than 40 “chop-like” wounds caused by a sharp-edged object, possibly a hatchet or cleaver.
