Pregnant woman 'lured teen girl to rape, death'

Teenage intern nurse Hu Yixuan had helped the pregnant woman who pretended to collapse.

CHINA - She tried to help a pregnant woman, but the 17-year-old Chinese girl ended up dead.

The girl was allegedly raped and murdered by the pregnant woman and her husband.

Chinese media reports said that the pregnant woman faked illness to lure the girl to her husband so he could have sex with a virgin.

Intern nurse Hu Yixuan passed by the expectant mother who had pretended to collapse in the street in Jiamusi city in north-east China's Heilongjiang province.

She accompanied the woman, known only as Tan, to her home where she was met by her husband who allegedly gave her yogurt spiked with sleeping pills.

The man then allegedly tried to rape her, but the nurse was conscious enough to fight him off, the Mail Online reported.

During the struggle, the couple suffocated her with a quilt before stuffing her body in a suitcase and burying her in a rural area, according to news portal China.org.cn which cited the Heilongjiang Morning Post.

Haunting surveillance footage reportedly shows the teenager's last moments as she walks with Tan under an umbrella to the house last Wednesday.

One of the nurse's friends also uploaded a chilling screenshot of the girl's final WeChat app message to her before she was killed.

It said: "I've just helped a pregnant aunty to her doorstep."

Closed-circuit television footage showed the pregnant woman and her husband carrying the suitcase containing Yixuan's body to a car before driving away, information portal shanghaiist.com reported.

Neighbours claimed the couple had separated after the woman was "caught in bed with another man", and that she had tried to win him back by promising to "find him a virgin" to have sex with.

The couple were arrested early this week and the woman reportedly confessed to the murder. The nurse's body was found a day after the murder.

The woman is currently under police guard at a hospital as she is expected to go into labour soon, the Heilongjiang Morning Post reported.
