Zhang was first arrested in July 2015 and was held in detention for a year and a half before standing trial on 23 January 2017. In late July 2015, Zhang Xiuhong, the presiding deacon of Living Stone Church, was stopped and hauled from her car as she was driving near the church building. One of the assailants climbed into her car and drove away.
