Zhao Liping, former police chief and senior political advisor of Inner Mongolia, has been charged with murder, bribery and possession of fire arms and explosives, said the Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) Wednesday.
Zhao was suspected of "intentionally causing the death of a person" and taking advantage of his posts to seek benefits for others, in addition to accepting large bribes, said the SPP in a press release.
Zhao had been police chief of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region before becoming vice chairman of the regional committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).
Prosecutors also charged him with illegal possession of fire arms and explosives.
Zhao was expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and handed over to prosecutors in July after investigation by the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI).
