When it comes to murder using the awesome power of science, there is no gender disparity.
Tianle Li, 44, a Bristol-Myers Squibb chemist for 10 years, has been found guilty of fatally poisoning her estranged husband, Xiaoye Wang, with thallium she got at work. She faces life in prison when she's sentenced Sept. 30th.
She was convicted of poisoning Wang with the highly toxic thallium while they were in the process of divorcing. He died early in 2011.
Of course, that was corporate science. Maybe academic science is still behind in equality, though. Better get the AAUW on that.
