Police in the south-central Vietnamese province of Khanh Hoa have arrested a man for fatally stabbing his neighbor after the victim had thrown a noisy karaoke party at his home.

Senior Lieutenant Colonel Nguyen Duc Thanh, deputy head of the police department of the provincial capital of Nha Trang confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that L.V.Q., 25, had been apprehended for murder.

The case has been transferred to the provincial police department for further investigation, Thanh added.

According to officers, Q. works as a construction worker and lives with his wife at an tenanted house in Phuoc Dong Commune, Nha Trang.

On Tuesday night, 53-year-old B.N.P.H ., who rents a house next-door, threw a drinking and karaoke party with his friends.

Q. returned to his home at around 8:00 pm that day and asked H. to turn down the volume.

The neighbor did as told, but he refused to stop singing, saying it was a holiday time. Vietnam observed a five-day holiday marking the Reunification Day on April 30 and International Workers’ Day on May 1.

Shortly after the karaoke noise returned, Q. grabbed a knife in his house and stabbed H. at his chest, killing the victim on the spot.

He then returned to his rented home and was arrested by police on the same night.

The suspect admitted he had consumed alcohol prior to the incident.
