Man kills ex-wife, male companion in apparent debt dispute

A man killed his ex-wife and a fellow man due to a debt dispute in Taikang, Henan Province last Sunday.

A man ran over his ex-wife and a male companion in Taikang, Henan Province last Sunday, killing them both.

The two victims were hit by the car travelling at high speed at about 5pm while crossing a road. They both died at the scene.

Local police said on Tuesday that the car driver, surnamed Gao, was the ex-husband of the female victim, surnamed Fan. 

The pair divorced last July, but a recent debt dispute apparently led to the incident, police added.

Gao has been detained for suspected murder.

Further investigation is ongoing.
