Roommate's poisoning meant as joke: medical student

A medical student at Fudan University who was accused of poisoning his roommate to death said at trial today it was just an April Fool's joke.
Lin Senhao, 27, denied having held a grudge against his roommate, Huang Yang, though he thought Huang was self-righteous, the Shanghai No. 2 Intermediate People's Court heard in the ongoing trial.
Lin insisted that he didn't mean to kill Huang. Instead, the postgraduate student said he had planned to just make Huang feel sick since he believed Huang would take only a little of the toxin, which shouldn't have killed him, Lin said.
Lin said he had experimented on rats and many didn't die of poisoning.
