A couple killed their nephew after he was accused of raping his aunt on numerous occasions.

Authorities in China, were looking to arrest the couple for the murder. However, they fled from their hometown.

After murdering their 17-year-old nephew, the Zhao couple fled the area. The couple changed their name and moved to another town in the province of Sichuan.

It took police nine years to track them down and finally bring them to justice. The woman claims that her nephew, Xiao Fu, raped her for two years before her husband finally killed him.

Fu, who lived close to the couple, often came to the home, where he allegedly forced himself onto his aunt, the couple claimed.

The woman told police that when she tried to resist his advances, he beat her. The husband said that he was afraid of his nephew and therefore, did not report the rape to police.

The couple said that the final straw came when Fu came to their home while drunk. He allegedly became violent and attacked his uncle.

The uncle killed his nephew and the couple buried the body before fleeing the village. When they were finally arrested, the couple revealed the location of Fu’s body so that his parents can have closure and give him a proper burial.
