A female fugitive suspected of involvement in the murder of seven people was arrested in Xiamen, Fujian province, on Thursday after two decades on the run, Anhui Provincial Public Security Department said on Saturday.
Lao Rongzhi was suspected of killing seven people with her ex-boyfriend, Fa Ziying, from 1996 to 1999. She escaped from a rented house in July 1999 when Fa was arrested in Hefei, capital of Anhui province, after two men were killed.
Lao went into hiding and used a false identity. She was helping a friend manage a business counter in a shopping mall in Xiamen when she was captured, Xiamen police said.
