In response to the killing of a judge in Hunan province, China's top court said on Wednesday that a society ruled by law will not allow its judicial authority to be violently intimidated.

The Supreme People's Court made the statement after a police report in Changsha, capital of Hunan, said Zhou Chunmei, a 45-year-old senior judge of the Hunan High People's Court, was killed in an underground parking lot in the city on Tuesday.

The preliminary investigation carried out by the police showed that the suspect, surnamed Xiang, allegedly stabbed Zhou to death after she refused to bend the law for a lawsuit Xiang had filed to her court.
