A cancer patient who stabbed a doctor in a Beijing hospital has been sentenced to 15 years in jail.
The Beijing Second Intermediate People's Court Friday also ordered Wang Baoming to pay a fine of 530,000 yuan ($84,048), Xinhua reported.
Wang, 54, stabbed Xu Wen, a surgeon at Tongren Hospital, 18 times in her arms, head and back on Sep 15, 2011, after accusing her of malpractice during an operation in 2006.
Xu had received serious injured but survived. Police detained Wang shortly after the attack.
