CHINA - A man cut off the right hand of his girlfriend's 10-year-old son and boiled it in an electric kettle after an argument with her over money, Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported.
The 30-year-old from Shenyang, China was drunk when he had a fight with her over the telephone at about 2am on Wednesday.
He had been living in a hotel room with the woman and her son from a previous marriage.
After their argument, he hit the boy's head with a knife before severing his hand and tossing it into a kettle to boil it.
The boy was rushed to the hospital later. Police have arrested the man.
