FILE - In this March 11, 2012 photo, then Chongqing party secretary Bo Xilai puts on his glasses during a plenary session of the National People's Congress at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Bo's wife Gu Kailai received a suspended death sentence Monday, Aug. 2012 for the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood, as authorities move to tidy up a huge political scandal ahead of a once-in-a-decade leadership transition this fall. Gu's sentencing clears the way for the ruling Communist Party to deal with her husband, Bo, who was formerly one of China's most prominent politicians before being stripped of his Politburo post in the scandal. Bo has not been directly implicated in the murder of Heywood, but is accused of unspecified grave violations of party discipline. (AP Photo/Andy Wong, File) less
