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.
