A Chinese man who killed two of six women held as sex slaves in his basement has been executed. Former clerk Li Hao, 36, from the central province of Henan was put to death after being convicted of "murder, rape, illegal detention, organised prostitution and manufacturing pornography for profit", the state news agency Xinhua reported. In 2009, Li dug a "dungeon" in his basement where he imprisoned and repeatedly raped the six women for periods ranging from between two and 21 months. Seven metal doors had been installed to stop them escaping. Five of the women were prostitutes whom he had tricked into his prison by soliciting their services, and one was selling birth control products, the People's Daily website reported. The victims were aged between 16 and 23. One, who was 20 at the time of kidnap, became pregnant, the website revealed. Li forced three of the women to kill two of the others - one was strangled and another died after being repeatedly beaten, the reports said. One woman who participated in both murders was sentenced to three years' prison while the rest were put on probation. In 2011 Li had his surviving captives make obscene videos online and have sex with customers. He spent two weeks a month with the women while telling his wife he worked nights as a guard, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported in 2011. Li was caught in September that year after one captive escaped and went to the police.
