Gu Kailai

Gu Kalai, born on 15 November 1958, is a Chinese lawyer and businesswoman. She is the youngest of five daughters of General Gu Jingsheng, a prominent revolutionary in the years before the Chinese Communist Party took power.

Gu met Bo Xilai (one of China's most influential politicians until he was stripped of his offices in 2012) in 1984 while on a field trip looking into environmental art in Jin County, Liaoning, where he was the Communist Party secretary. Soon, she became Bo’s second wife.   

The couple have one son, Bo Guagua, who studied at Harrow School, Balliol College, Oxford, and Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.

In August 2012, Gu was convicted of murdering British businessman Neil Heywood and was given a suspended death sentence.
