A woman in Ho Chi Minh City has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for stabbing her boyfriend to death following an argument at their tenanted house last year.

The municipal People’s Court on Monday imposed a 15-year jail term upon Tao Kieu Oanh, 30, who hails from the Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long, for murder.

Oanh and the victim – 25-year-old Nguyen Van Hien – were in a relationship and lived together at a tenanted house in Tan Son Nhi Ward, Tan Phu District.

On the night of December 25, 2019, the couple invited their two neighbors, S.N.A. and T.H.P., to their house for a party.

The four drank rice wine until the early morning of December 26, before Oanh decided to go to bed.

A. then asked Hien and P. to bring the party to his place.

Hien left his tenanted house with the two neighbors and locked the door from the outside.

Oanh woke up later that morning and became infuriated as she was not able to open the door, so she locked it from the inside.

At around 6:00 am the same day, Hien returned and found out the door had been locked.

As Oanh did not answer his call, the man punched a hole through the door to open it.

Hien headed to the bedroom despite being yelled at by Oanh.

The woman then took a knife from the kitchen and repeatedly stabbed her boyfriend, before getting back to bed.

A. came to the house later that morning and discovered Hien’s bloody body.

He rushed the victim to the hospital but he succumbed to his wounds at the infirmary.

Oanh was arrested by police officers on the same day, but she was released from custody after they found out she was pregnant.
