A 13-year-old boy surnamed Shao stabbed his 37-year-old mother to death on Saturday, during a family argument over the mother’s “harsh” discipline, local police in Yancheng, in eastern China’s Jiangsu province said. The boy has since been arrested. Police did not disclose any further details.

The case, though still under investigation, has raised public concerns, as this is not the first of its kind. Last year, a 12-year-old boy surnamed Wu killed his mother with a knife after she caught him smoking at home and beat him with a belt. The boy was later released, as the age of criminal responsibility in China is 14, but his case triggered heated debate over the punishment of juvenile crimes.

In 2018, China established a new department under the Supreme People’s Procuratorate, the country’s top national body responsible for prosecution and investigation, to make and update related regulations for juvenile crimes.
