Police in Vietnam have detained three teenagers for allegedly killing a senior woman to steal her gold jewelry and money on Tuesday night.

The suspects, K.V.A., 18, K.H.H., 15, and K.V.K, 16, all reside in Thanh Hoa Province, located in the north-central part of the country, officers said on Thursday.

Local police also confiscated four knives, a pair of gold earrings and two cellphones, they added.

On Wednesday morning, 65-year-old Le Thi Hue were found dead on her bed with many cutting marks over her body.

Her relatives immediately reported it to local authorities and police.

Thanh Hoa Province’s police identified the three suspects, who had promptly left the crime scene and thrown exhibits into a nearby river, according to initial investigation.

The three teenagers together broke the victim’s piggy bank to steal around VND2 million (US$86).

They then came to an Internet café to play games.

At around 6:30 pm the same day, the suspects sold the victim’s gold earrings for VND15 million ($648) and shared the money.

After that, they returned home and went to bed.

Local police are working on further investigation.
