A Chinese student has killed his room-mate after being aggravated by his loud snoring. Guo Liwei, 23, stabbed Zhao Yan, 22, in the chest and back after an argument over the noise generated by his heavy breathing. “Zhao verbally abused me several times, prompting me to kill him,” Guo said. He has admitted to the murder, and is currently awaiting sentencing in north-eastern Jilin province.
