Sunday, December 03, 2017, 22:21 GMT+7

A Vietnamese teenager has been arrested for allegedly murdering his girlfriend and hiding her body following a quarrel last week.

Pham Van Quy, 18, residing in Nghe An Province, has been held in four-month custody to assist the investigation of his murder charge, Senior Lieutenant Colonel Nguyen Hai Dang, a police chief, affirmed on Sunday morning.

The victim was 17-year-old P.T.H., Quy’s girlfriend, who was a twelfth-grade student.

According to initial information, H. was permitted by her family to go out with Quy for a shopping date at a local market on the afternoon of November 29.

The young man later took her to a local national park for sightseeing, before the couple had a row.

Quy then stabbed H. to death and attempted to kill himself after returning home. He was brought to the hospital by his family.

On the night of the same day, H.’s family members panicked as the young girl had not come home and were unable to reach Quy by phone.

They later came to the infirmary, where Quy was being treated.

The teenager stated that his self-inflicted wound had been caused by some local men after he took H. home.

Quy later posted several statuses on his Facebook account, telling H. to come home and asking for his friends’ help.  

On the night of December 1, police found H.’s body at the park with multiple stabs, one of which was in her heart.

Following an investigation, officers determined that Quy had killed the girl and hidden her corpse in a bush at the park.
