LÀO CAI — Tẩn Láo Lở, accused of murdering four people, including three children in Bát Xát District in the northern mountain province of Lào Cai,  was sentenced to death yesterday by the provincial People’s Court.

Lở, 24, from the Dao ethnic group, lives in Phìn Ngan Hamlet, Trịnh Tường Commune, Bát Xát District.

According to the court’s indictment, on August 9, on the way to catch rock turtles, Lở beat Tẩn Tả Mẩy with a wooden stick and dropped her in a nearby pond, piling rocks over her body.

He also killed Mẩy’s two-year-old daughter, Tẩn Mai Phương, and Mẩy’s six-year-old niece, Tẩn Thùy Chi, drowning both in the pond.

Then Lở got into Mẩy’s house and saw Mẩy’s other daughter, Tẩn Thúy Vân, almost one month old, sleeping on the hammock. Lở took her to the stream, drowned her and placed rocks over her body.

After killing the four family members, he ransacked the house and took objects worth over VNĐ1.3 million (US$58).

Lở escaped to the forest, where he hid for almost a month before he was taken to the police by his family. — VNS
