Regarding the case of Hangzhou man Xu Guoli who killed his wife, the matter finally came to an end with the suspect’s arrest by the local public security bureau on July 30, 2020.
On the morning of May 14, 2021, Xu Guoli was prosecuted by the local prosecution on suspicion of intentional homicide. With the opening of the case, the truth about Xu Guoli’s wife’s murder also began to be exposed.
According to the suspect Xu Guoli, he and his wife, Ms. Lai, were a second marriage. Xu Guoli ran a pork business in the market when he was young and was considered quite prestigious in the area.
In 1988, Xu Guoli met the beautiful and dignified Ms. Lai, the two fell in love at first sight. However, their relationship did not get the permission and blessing of their families, and three years later, Xu Guoli and Ms. Lai broke up for various reasons. After the breakup, they were sad and painful for a while, but soon got married and started a family under the arrangement of their families.
In 2008, the 42-year-old Xu Guoli and his 38-year-old first love Ms. Lai could not bear to miss each other, and finally defiantly broke through the family’s barrier, and then quickly registered to get married.
After the marriage, Ms. Lai gave birth to a daughter for her husband Xu Guoli, and at first their relationship was very loving and sweet. However, with the birth of their daughter, coupled with the trivial life, Xu Guoli and his wife, Ms. Lai, began to endlessly quarrel.
Xu Guoli said his wife, Ms. Lai, never treat him as a man, always complaining that he is a foreigner, not only old enough to earn money, a little bit of small things are always cowering, not a little manly. And Ms. Lai felt that her husband Xu Guoli is useless, except for washing dishes and pots at home every day, there is no little ability to earn money.
The two of them often quarrel because of these trivial matters, and sometimes they will fight when they have an emotional breakdown. Ms. Lai is a strong character, once in anger actually took something to smash her husband Xu Guoli’s eyebrow bone, and at the time, his young daughter was watching.
In the fall of 2019, Ms. Lai’s mother’s family was given a new house due to demolition. At that time, the two began to quarrel many times again because of the new house decoration.
After this time, Ms. Lai to her husband Xu Guoli is more than tired, and even began to prohibit him to participate in his daughter’s study problems, the family’s money and stocks basic management is not allowed Xu Guoli to intervene.
In this way, the gap between Xu Guoli and his wife, Ms. Lai, became deeper and deeper. His dissatisfaction and hatred towards his wife was also gradually accumulated and filled day after day.
In the early morning of July 4, 2020, Xu Guoli and his wife, Ms. Lai, went to the hospital together, and then they had a big fight on the street over trivial matters, followed by various anger home.
In the afternoon of that day, Xu Guoli and his wife, Ms. Lai, were making meat dumplings together at home. At that time, Xu Guoli was in charge of cooking meat rounds in the kitchen, while his wife, Ms. Lai, was cleaning the cutter and meat grinder in the bathroom.
Suddenly, Ms. Lai accidentally cut her finger while cleaning the cutter, so she then launched a burst of humiliation and angry scolding at her husband Xu Guoli in the kitchen.
Xu Guoli was so angry that he could not lift his head, but because his daughter was present at the time, he did not break out immediately, but brewed a plan in his mind to kill his wife.
At 11:17 p.m., Xu Guoli took advantage of his wife’s sleep to use a towel and a pillow to try to smother her to death. When Xu Guoli covered Ms. Lai’s mouth and nose, Ms. Lai once woke up, and even cried out his name.
At that time, Xu Guoli hesitated for a moment, but once he thought of his wife’s usual abuse of himself, he still had a heart, so he simply covered her to death.
After his wife was muffled to death, Xu Guoli quickly dragged her to the bathroom and then used a cutter and meat grinder to divide her body. Over the next two days, Xu Guoli moved his wife’s body to multiple locations and then flushed the crime scene and bathroom with a large amount of detergent.
After the aftermath, Xu Guoli began to pretend to be unaware of his wife’s reported death. After 26 days, Xu Guoli was arrested by local police and subsequently charged with intentional homicide in court.
Xu Guoli, who was arrested, said in a tearful interview that she had tortured and abused me for 10 years after her marriage. I know I can’t do this, but I was really mad at that time, who can understand the pain in my heart!
The case has now been fully traced and completed, and the perpetrator, Xu Guoli, has been prosecuted according to the law and has received the sentence and punishment he deserves.
