Lee was arrested yesterday after police suspected him of stabbing 65-year-old Duong Thi Bi to death at her home in Hoa Binh commune, Cho Moi District, on Sunday night.
Lee reportedly arrived at Bi’s house that night on a motorbike and sneaked into the house without her knowledge. He then used a knife to stab her many times to death, the commune police said.
Bi’s family members told police that Bi had forbidden her daughter to continue her relationship with Lee after the family discovered that Lee was a married man.
As a result, Bi’s daughter had avoided Lee afterwards. In response, Lee had threatened to kill Bi and other members of her family, Bi’s relatives said.
The police are seeking an interpreter to assist in questioning Lee.
