- At the beginning of 2008, defendant, Wang Daohong, made acquaintance with a married woman surnamed Liu (victim, 33 years old at the time of death) through online chat and they afterwards developed into a romantic relationship. In July 2009, Wang Daohong got acquainted with a new girlfriend and made the girlfriend pregnant. In November 2009, Wang Daohong met Liu and had sex with her. On the following day, Wang Daohong asked to borrow 5,000 yuan from Liu on the excuse of his girlfriend's pregnancy, but was refused by Liu. As angry as Wang Daohong was, he pinched Liu's neck with hands, tied it tight with a towel, and blocked Liu's mouth and nose with adhesive tapes, which caused Liu's death by mechanical asphyxia. After having buried Liu's corpse, Wang Daohong sent short messages to Liu's family defrauding of money, but failed.
