Shanghai medical student used liver toxin to kill room-mate


A medical student of  Fudan University who is accused of poisoning his roommate to death in April will stand trial next week.
Lin Senhao reportedly held some grudge against his roommate, Huang Yang, over trivial matters. Huang, 27, a postgraduate student of Fudan University Medical School, died after drinking water that was laced with N-Nitrosodimethylamine, an organic chemical highly toxic to the liver. He was diagnosed with liver failure and died of poisoning on April 16.
The chemical is often used to induce liver disease in rats in cancer experiments in laboratories.
After being arrested, Lin admitted poisoning his roommate.
Lin told police that he stole the chemical from the university and injected it into the dispenser on March 31.
