Yang Wen was working in the emergency department at Civil Aviation General Hospital in Chaoyang district on 24 December when Sun stabbed her in the neck with a knife. Seriously injured, the doctor died early the following day.
Sun, 55, is the son of a 95-year-old female patient at the hospital who has been bedridden for years after a stroke.
Sun was charged with intentional homicide early this month.
The court said Sun, who pleaded guilty, had deliberately and illegally deprived someone of their life. That constituted the extremely serious crime of intentional homicide and should be punished to the full extent of the law.
