A 21-year-old Chinese gay man has been sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve after being found guilty of killing his sex partner, a 68-year-old German man.

The sentence was handed down Thursday at the Intermediate People's Court in Zhongshan City, in south China's Guangdong Province, a court spokesman said Monday.

The Chinese man, a native from the southwestern Sichuan Province and a staff of a Zhongshan hotel, had gay sex with the German man in the latter's rented apartment in the city since January last year.

Both men's names were not revealed.

The Chinese man later broke up with his German partner, alleging he was not fond of gay sex, the court heard.

He returned to live in the rented apartment on July 11 last year after his partner promised not to harass him sexually.

But he was nevertheless harassed by the German man the next day despite repeated warnings. The young man then hit the German man in the left temple with a hammer and killed him, the court heard.

He dismembered the body three days later and scattered the body parts different places of the city. He was detained by police in his company dormitory on July 23 last year.

It was not clear whether the Chinese man would lodge an appeal.
