Chinese mother gets 5 years for killing twin sons

Beijing. A Chinese court has sentenced a mother to a “lenient” five years in prison for murdering her paralyzed twin sons who needed full-time care, in a case that aroused public sympathy, state media reported Wednesday.

The official China Daily newspaper said Han Qunfeng gave her sons water laced with sleeping pills before drowning them in a bathtub in November.

The 13-year olds had been born prematurely and had cerebral palsy.

Hab confessed to the murders at a hearing earlier this month. “I just wanted them to leave quietly. I would not kill them if we could go back in time,” Han told the judges, according to the newspaper.

After killing the boys, she dressed them in new pyjamas and then attempted to take her own life by drinking a mixture of pesticide and rat poison, the newspaper said.

I don't understand why she got a sentence of only 5 years after taking two innocent lives.

I chose the sentence should be longer.

The lenient sentence seems to me reasonable.
It is a crime for sure, but  
obviously this judge took circumstances into account and not just a stubborn "law executioner".

.

I am worried such "lenient" sentence would encourage more people to "shake off"  their long-time sick or disabled family members.
