JI'NAN, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- Police have turned over a man who allegedly killed three children in a kindergarten attack Tuesday in Zibo City, east China's Shandong Province, to judiciary for prosecution, a statement from the city government said Sunday.

Fang Jiantang, a 26-year-old self-employed man, was detained within hours of the attack. Three children died at the scene, while three other children and four teachers were injured and taken to hospital.

An initial investigation showed that in the summer of 2009, Fang was slightly hit by a car and thus had a fight with the driver. The driver went missing since then, but Fang had been searching for opportunities to revenge, the statement said.

The statement, citing Fang's confession, said Fang, who worked at his parents' restaurant, had been "spoiled" since childhood and had a bad temper.

Fang said he had used a 60-centimeter long knife in the attack and police had found the murder weapon.

The investigation is continuing.
