A serial-killer dubbed China’s “Jack the Ripper”, who targeted women and girls wearing red has been sentenced to death for the killings of 11 people, including an eight-year-old.
 
Gao Chengyong, 54, was sentenced by a Chinese court for the brutal crimes which he committed over the course of 14 years, state television reports.
 
Chengyong was tried for multiple counts of homicide, rape, robbery and mutilation of corpses.
 
He confessed to killing 11 people between 1988 and 2002 in northwest China’s Baiyin city in Gansu Province and Baotou city in the northern region of Inner Mongolia, the report said.
 
Gao was arrested at his own grocery store in 2016 following a DNA test stemming from an unrelated crime committed by one of his relatives, according to state TV.
 
But before his crime sprees came to an end, the Gansu “Ripper” — who went on to become the country’s worst serial killer — invaded the nightmares of young Chinese women for decades.
 
Many were too scared to leave their homes, terrified they could be the next victim of the sadistic killer described by authorities as “reclusive”, “patient” and with a deep “hatred” for women.
 
For 14 years, he directed his loathing on women wearing red.
 
He targeted those who lived alone, then followed them back to their homes.
 
He then raped, murdered and in many cases, mutilated his victims’ bodies.
