China executes man who kept 6 women as sex slaves in dungeon under his basement

January 21, 2014 - 2:13 AM

BEIJING, China - A court official says authorities have executed a man who kept six women in a dungeon as sex slaves for periods up to 21 months.

Li Hao also was convicted of murdering two of the women.

The official Xinhua News Agency says he was convicted of offences including murder, rape and illegal detention and sentenced to death in November 2012.

Xinhua says the two women who died were killed by three of the others on Li's instructions, and were also found guilty of murder. It said the three were shown leniency.

Li dug the dungeon under a basement. The women were held for between two and 21 months.

An official from the Henan High Court confirmed Li's execution on Tuesday and the Xinhua report. She refused to give her name.
