On June 28, a 29-year-old man wielding a kitchen knife attacked a parent and three children outside an elite private elementary school in Shanghai. Two of the children, boys named Xiao Wen and Xiao Xuan, died from their injuries.

Huang Yichuan, who moved to Shanghai to find work earlier that month, was arrested. His murder trial has been repeatedly delayed and the victims’ families are anxiously awaiting the day he appears in court.
