SHANGHAI, China
(AP) — A Shanghai man who refused to care for his ailing 83-year-old mother and abandoned her in a public city square has been sentenced to 18 months in prison, a newspaper and court official said Friday.

Zhabei District People's Court sentenced 54-year-old Wang Kouma on Thursday after finding him guilty of leaving his mother at the People's Square in Shanghai in October 2007, said an official at the Zhabei District People's Court.
