However, after considering the incident, Ms. Li dialed 119 to ask the personnel on duty of the fire station to send an ambulance to rescue them. After being dealt with at the scene, he frankly confessed to stabbing Zhang Nan with a knife during the police inquiry and made the transcript. He should comply with the voluntary surrender regulation and be given a reduced sentence. Today, the sentence has been commuted to 11 years in prison.

Li, who is in custody, has not appeared in court to hear the sentence, so it is impossible to know her opinion on the verdict.
