An illegal immigrant has struck again and slaughtered five relatives while residing within a country that he never should have been in in the first place.
A Chinese immigrant accused of butchering five relatives with a meat cleaver, including four small children, will serve at least 125 years in prison after pleading guilty Wednesday to murder and manslaughter charges.
Mingdong Chen admitted that he killed his cousin’s wife, 37-year-old Qiao Zhen Li, and her children, Linda, 9; Amy, 7; Kevin, 5; and William Zhou, 18 months; in October 2013 in Brooklyn.
The 27-year-old showed no visible reaction as he pleaded guilty. Under a deal with prosecutors, Chen must serve at least 125 years in prison before becoming eligible for parole.
Prosecutors said Li called her mother-in-law in China on the evening of October 27, 2013, saying Chen was in the house with a knife and threatening the family.
When the mother-in-law heard children crying in the background, she called other relatives in New York who rushed to the home in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood. By the time they arrived, the five relatives were dead and Chen was dripping in blood.
Police said the family had been slaughtered, each of the five repeatedly stabbed and slashed in the throat and neck. Their bodies were found strewn about the house.
The one-year-old boy was so badly butchered that he was decapitated, according to reports.
The children’s father and Chen’s cousin, Yi Lin Zhuo, was working at a Long Island restaurant when the grisly murders unfolded in his home.
His wife tried to call him because she was alarmed about Chen’s behavior earlier in the evening, police said – but she was unable to get through to him.
Chen, who came to the US as a teenager in 2004, was a transient and illegally in the country, Assistant District Attorney Mark Hale said at the time of his arrest.
He had been staying in his cousin’s home for about a week before the killings, according to authorities.
When detectives questioned him, Chen told them he was jealous of the success of his fellow Chinese immigrants, police said. Relatives said he had been fired from different restaurant jobs.
Assistant District Attorney Mark Hale said prosecutors offered Chen the deal because it would spare Li’s husband and other relatives from having ‘to relive the worst day of their lives.’
Hale said they also wanted to ensure that Chen would publicly admit to the killings. Li’s husband was in court Wednesday but declined to comment.
In 2014, a Brooklyn judge ruled that Chen was not competent to stand trial because he had exhibited signs of mental illness that made him incapable of being able to assist in his own defense.
State Supreme Court Judge Vincent Del Giudice said Wednesday that Chen appeared to ‘be clear, lucid and competent.’ He said he accepted the plea deal under the condition that Chen would ‘be incarcerated until the day he dies.’
Not all illegal immigrants are killers, but all are criminals. With their very first act in our country, illegals break the law. We cannot expect them to hold a high standard of civic virtue and respect for the law when their very residency in our country is a violation of our laws.
