A suspect believed to have killed his wife 13 years ago is apprehended by Pudong police in Wuhan.

A man who is alleged to have killed his wife and injured her boyfriend 13 years ago has been apprehended, Shanghai police said on Monday.

The killing took place in Liutuan Town, in the Pudong New Area, on November 1, 2006, and a man surnamed Wang was soon determined to be the suspect.

Wang fled soon after the crime, police said, but due to a lack of eyewitnesses and surveillance cameras in that area, he couldn’t be caught at the time.

However, police  managed to secure his biological information from the scene and preserved it.

When the case was reopened recently, police found that Wang’s biological features matched those of a man called Yang Kaisheng who lived in Wuhan, capital of Hubei Province.

Yang has left his biological information with Wuhan police after being caught using prostitution services, police said.

Certain that Yang was Wang, Pudong police caught him on June 10 in Wuhan, and he soon confessed, according to police.
