    The wife of disgraced Chinese politician Bo Xilai lured a British businessman to a hotel in the south-western mega-city of Chongqing, where she got him drunk and fed him poison, according to testimony today in one of China's highest-profile murder trials in years.The secretive trial of Gu Kailai and a household aide, who are accused of murdering Bo family associate Neil Heywood, ended in less than a day at the Intermediate People's Court in the eastern Chinese city of Hefei.The defendants did not contest the murder charges; a guilty verdict is all but assured and could carry a death sentence.
