SHANGHAI (Reuters) - A Chinese court is due to deliver a verdict on Monday in the case against Gu Kailai, the woman tried for murdering British businessman Neil Heywood, in the latest chapter in a scandal that toppled her once-powerful politician husband, Bo Xilai.
"It's set for next Monday at 9 in the morning," a court spokeswoman said by telephone on Friday from the Intermediate People's Court in Hefei, where Gu's 7-hour trial was held on August 9.
