Monk Beats Female Buddhist to Death

The Korea Times, July 27, 2009

Seoul, South Korea -- An unidentified monk, 47, was apprehended for allegedly beating a female Buddhist, 42, to death, police said Monday.

The prosecution sought a warrant to arrest the monk at a temple in Gwangyang in South Jeolla Province on charges of hitting the female adherent ? known here as ``bosal'' ? in the face with a bottle, police said.

"I resorted to violence in a fit of anger, while I was chiding her for meeting a man,'' the monk was quoted as saying by police.

The suspect surrendered himself to police two days after he killed the woman.
