The four police officers, involved in the Bogu Kailai’s international homicide case, stand for trial in the Hefei Municipal Intermediate People’s Court in Anhui Province.

It comes a day after the trial on Bogu Kailai and Zhang Xiaojun over the killing of British businessman Neil Heywood on Thursday. The four police officers were suspected of covering up Bogu Kailai’s illegal conduct during the investigation into Neil Heywood’s death. They were also charged by the People’s Procuratorate of Hefei City with bending the law to achieve personal benefit.

The officers are Guo Weiguo, former deputy chief of Chongqing’s Public Security Bureau, Li Yang, former chief of the bureau’s criminal section, Wang Pengfei, former chief of the bureau’s technical detection team and also former chief of the Public Security Sub-bureau of Chongqing’s Yubei District, and Wang Zhi, former executive deputy chief of the Public Security Sub-bureau of the municipality’s Shapingba District. Bogu Kailai and her son surnamed Bo had conflicts with Neil Heywood over economic interests. Worrying about Neil Heywood’s threat to her son’s personal security, Bogu Kailai murdered Heywood.
