Murderer receives death sentence

Update: August, 31/2012 - 09:52

BAC NINH — The northern province of Bac Ninh's People's Court yesterday handed down the death sentence to a 34-year-old local man after he was found guilty of murder, damaging property and faking official documents.

Nguyen Duc Tiem planted explosives on his pregnant sister-in-law's motorbike that killed her and her four-year-old daughter last November.

Tiem shared a house with the family of his wife's brother, and he confessed to murdering his sister-in-law following an argument between the two couples.

In June 2010, Tiem planted explosives on the motorbike of a friend who he suspected of having an affair with his wife, causing the man to lose a leg.

Tiem was asked to pay VND187 million (US$8,900) in compensation to his wife's brother, and VND94 million ($4,500) to his friend. — VNS
