2 condemned to death for role in China milk crisis
A Chinese court condemned two men to death and handed a life term to a former dairy boss Thursday for their roles in the country's contaminated milk scandal, which ignited public anger and accusations of cover-ups.
The Intermediate People's Court in Shijiazhuang gave the life sentence to Tian Wenhua, 66, the former general manager and chairwoman of Sanlu Group Co., the dairy at the center of the crisis. She was the highest-ranking official charged in the food safety scandal.
At her trial in December, Tian pleaded guilty to charges of producing and selling fake or substandard products after infant formula tainted with the chemical melamine was blamed in the deaths of at least six babies and the illnesses of nearly 300,000 others.
