Around the World

1) China - Unburdened with the mandate against double jeopardy, a Chinese Appellate Court increases a penalty from life to death because the defendant went to the press first, the murder was committed in cold blood, and the defendant showed no intention of compemnsating the victim's family.

2) Taiwan - Not only were the men who raped, killed, and canabalized an insurance agent sentenced to death, they lost their right to vote as well.
