A young man, executed 18 years ago in China, was cleared after being wrongly convicted of murder and rape. Huugjilt, 18 years old, was charged with the rape and murder of a young woman who was killed in April 1996 in a public restroom next to the textile factory where he worked. The teenager was sentenced to death just one month later and was executed on June 10, 1996.
