China prosecutes Bo Xilai's wife for murder
BEIJING - The wife of disgraced Chinese political leader Bo Xilai and an orderly working in the couple's home have been prosecuted for murder, state news agency Xinhua reported on Thursday.
Gu Kailai, a former international lawyer whose husband was one of China's most promising political leaders until his downfall earlier this year, was "recently" prosecuted by a Chinese court, Xinhua said in a brief dispatch.
Zhang Xiaojun, previously described as an orderly who worked for the high-flying couple, was also prosecuted, it said, citing authorities.
