The court heard that in the run-up to the poisoning, Wang had quarreled with another teacher from Jiaozuo kindergarten about how to best manage the students.
Then, on the morning of March 27, 2019, Wang added neigh to the porridge provided by the school for the other teacher’s students. Wang had previously bought nitrite online.
Wang had previously been caught trying to poison her husband, nicknamed Feng, in February 201
“The vomit was all over (in their) pants. There were other children also vomiting and looking pale,” said the father, surnamed Li.
Allegations of needle injuries
Wang’s sentence comes amid new allegations of child abuse in a kindergarten in northern China.
Eight parents said they found unknown needle marks on their children’s heads and bodies after they returned from Zhaojun Dingqi kindergarten in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Xinhua state media said.
According to Xinhua, when asked about the needle holes, the children told parents that their teacher stabbed them with “toothpicks” and “red needles” for not behaving in class – and ordered them not to tell their families.
In a statement, Xincheng District Police said three women were arrested on suspicion of “torturing children in their care”, although the case remains under investigation.
The Dingqi kindergarten said in a statement that while the school apologized for the concern and concern it caused to the parents, it had not yet found any evidence to support the claims.
“At present, (we) have been working with the police to provide relevant surveillance footage and equipment, and have been cooperating with the public security department’s investigation,” the statement said.
