BEIJING (AP) — Chinese state media say a kindergarten headmaster and a man have been sentenced to death in a poisoning case that left two girls dead.

According to state broadcaster China Central Television on Saturday, the head of the kindergarten was upset that a rival school had better enrollments and injected rat poison into a bottle of yogurt. He then asked his accomplice to place it on the road in late April 2013.

Two village girls died after drinking the yogurt, which was placed with a notebook and a pencil in a plastic bag on the way to the other kindergarten in Pingshan County.
