Shanghai, April 25 (IANS) A man has been arrested in China for killing a young woman as she looked like his ex-girlfriend and then having sex with the corpse, a media report said Monday.

Twentythree-year-old Zhang Fenglang said he killed the woman as she looked like his ex-girlfriend who had left him, Shanghai Daily quoted prosecutors as saying.

Zhang fled Shanghai and was arrested from his hometown in Shandong March 30. He was sent back to this city to face criminal proceedings.

He told the police that he had no intention of killing the woman - till he saw her face. It sparked anger as he recalled getting dumped by his ex-girlfriend.

“At first, I only wanted to rob her. But when I looked at her and discovered how much she resembled my ex-girlfriend, I decided I must vent my anger,” he told the police.

His girlfriend broke up with him in July and he then moved to Shanghai. He, however, decided to rob people and return to his hometown after getting into gambling debt.

The media report said that Zhang confessed that he initiated the attack on the 27-year-old woman by putting a rope around her neck and strangled her to death.

He allegedly had sex with the woman’s corpse soon after the murder.
