A 54-year-old man Thursday beheaded his sister in the front of neighbours. The man, identified by his surname Lin, decapitated his sister with a kitchen knife outside their home in southern Kaohsiung city in Taiwan after an argument.
Reports say Lin and his sister, 52, were both unmarried and lived together. He had been taking care of the mentally ill woman before he killed her.
Police say Lin had quarreled with her after she refused to go to hospital for her mental illness treatment. Local television reported that she had knelt and pleaded for her life before she was beheaded.
