3 boys fatally beat teacher to death, steal her phone and cash

20 October 2015, 10:50

Baijing — Chinese state media say three boys aged 11 to 13 attacked and killed a teacher and robbed her of a mobile phone and a few hundred dollars in cash in southern China.

The state-run Beijing News said Tuesday that the boys were hanging out around an elementary school in the township of Lianqiao in the province of Hunan on Sunday when they decided to rob the only teacher guarding the school.

It says the boys — who are attending other schools — beat the 52-year-old teacher with a wood stick, stuffed her mouth with cloth and dragged her into a bathroom, where she died.

The report says the students ran away with the teacher's cell phone and about 2,000 yuan in cash ($330).
