Interesting...where did you get this piece of info from?

And why would/did Guan Yu kill her...I can find no reason. If Guan Yu didn't want her, he would have sent her back to Cao Cao...like he did to all the servants Cao Cao gave to him.

There are loads and loads of folktales and opera stories about the 3 Kingdoms which crop up now and then and this is one of them. Guan Yu killed her so that she could never betray another man like she had Lu Bu and Dong Zhuo.
