Update: The subject of this story, Huang Liping, was executed Friday night, according to a friend of her family.

A convicted drug dealer and her family are making last-ditch efforts to reverse her death sentence, arguing that the penalty is harsher than her accomplices received, even though she played a less important role in the crime.

The appeals court involved in the case has been accused of bending the rules in favor of certain defendants, a common problem in China’s legal system.
