Family killed in 'revenge' attack.

A CHINESE businessman, motivated by revenge, brutally knifed a family of four on the same day as the rest of the country celebrated the royal wedding, a court has heard.

Anxiang Du, 54, is accused of killing Manchester Metropolitan University lecturer Jifeng "Jeff"' Ding, his wife, Ge "Helen" Chui, and their two daughters, Xing "Nancy" 18, and Alice, 12, on April 29, 2011.

He has denied four counts of murder, and during the first day of his trial at Northampton Crown Court a jury of eight women and four men heard that he stabbed the Ding family to death in order to "avenge himself" after their business relationship turned sour and he ended up owing thousands of pounds in costs.

Outlining the case for the jury, William Harbage QC said the prosecution case was that Anxiang Du, on the day of the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, on April 29, 2011, travelled to Northampton from his home in Coventry and stabbed to death Mr and Mrs Ding and their two daughters, Nancy aged 18 and Alice aged 12.
