Chinese gets 15 years for killing NZ taxi driver
Chinese man gets 15 years in jail for killing New Zealand taxi driver
By The Associated Press

SHANGHAI (AP) ' A Shanghai court has sentenced to 15 years in prison a Chinese man who admitted killing a New Zealand taxi driver before fleeing to his homeland.

Shanghai's Second Intermediate Court handed down the sentence Wednesday, citing Xiao Zhen's remorse over the killing as a reason for not imposing a harsher sentence.

The 24-year-old Xiao was arrested last year in China for the alleged murder of Auckland taxi driver Hiren Mohini in January 2010. He was tried in Shanghai because China and New Zealand do not have an extradition treaty.
