A Chinese has been arrested for killing his girlfriend and then taking a selfie with her.
The suspect simply identified as Qin, shared the photo of himself and his girlfriend, who has been named as Lin, on a local social network, dailymail.co.uk reports.
The website said Qin was apprehended on September 6 near the scene of the crime after police received reports of the photograph, which had been widely shared on Chinese websites.
The exact details are not known but it is thought that Qin had taken a selfie of himself with his girlfriend, whose eyes were shut, after she had died.
Qin later posted this photograph publicly on an unnamed Chinese social network site, which could be seen by those within his friendship group.
It is thought that the pair had a lovers’ tiff when Qin committed the crime.
A caption, accompanying the photograph, read ‘forgive me for my selfish love’.
Reports of the crime and the morbid selfie became widely circulated, which led to the man’s arrest just nine hours later.
