I have heard of people taking hostages or robbing banks, in an effort to force the police to shoot them as a sort of suicide attempt, but I just cannot fathom what this this young women from China did to ensure her own death.
Huang broke into the house of a little baby girl last week, while her family was farming in a nearby field.
She then stabbed the baby with a knife and suffocated her to death with a pillow.
When police found Huang at the scene of the crime, she told them that she had murdered the baby in suicide attempt, hoping the police would execute her.
Police are still investigating the matter.
