A Chinese court has convicted a man of intentional homicide and sentenced him to death for hurling a toddler to the ground because of an argument with her mother over a parking space.

The Beijing court system said in a statement that the 39-year-old Han Lei grabbed the two-year-old from her carriage and threw her to the ground in the capital.

The girl was severely injured and died days later in a hospital. Han fled the scene on July 23 but police caught him the following day.

The Beijing No. 1 Intermediate People's Court sentenced Han to death and a second man who drove him away from the scene to five years for attempting to cover up a crime.

The incident horrified the Chinese public.
