Bo Xilai scandal: Wife Gu Kailai Charged with Murder

Chinese Political Leader-Mr. BO XILAI

The wife of disgraced Chinese Political Leader Mr.  Bo Xilai, has been charged with murder.

Gu Kailai and Zhang Xiaojun, employed at Mr Bo’s home, were “recently” prosecuted by a Chinese court, reports indicate.

She has been questioned over the suspected murder of British businessman Neil Heywood.

Mr Heywood was found dead in a hotel in Chongqing on 15 November 2011.

Local officials initially said he died of excessive drinking, but the Government announced in April it was investigating Mr Bo’s wife in connection with the case.

The two are accused of poisoning Mr Heywood.
