A Chinese man who allegedly killed his wife and eight other people in a fit of jealous rage has been arrested.

State media say 32-year-old fruit seller Qin Changcheng allegedly went on the rampage Monday in the northern city of Baotou. Those killed also included his uncle, aunt and the boss of a car wash where his wife formerly worked.

Qin was tracked down and arrested by officers in the neighboring province of Hebei late Tuesday. The reports said he had argued with his wife over suspicions that she was cheating on him and that he also had multiple conflicts with relatives.

Such criminal cases in China are usually dealt with swiftly and those found guilty executed.
