A Chinese company director attempted suicide after murdering his Vietnamese girlfriend in the southern province of Binh Duong.

Officers under the provincial Department of Public Security confirmed on Wednesday they were investigating the murder, which took place in Ben Cat Town, earlier the same day.

The victim was D.T.V.Tr., a 27-year-old from the Mekong Delta province of An Giang.

The suspect is Chang Chao Ching, the 57-year-old Chinese director of Super Metal Vietnam, where Tr. was employed.

According to preliminary information, Chang and Tr. were in a romantic relationship.

At around 6:00 pm on Wednesday, the two had an argument at Chang’s office, during which Chang took a knife to slit Tr.’s throat.

After murdering the victim, Chang left the company headquarters with the weapon.

After receiving a report on the case, police officers managed to track down Chang’s car and surround him.

Unable to escape, the murder suspect attempted to kill himself by cutting his wrist with the knife.

However, officers quickly broke the car window and brought him to the hospital for emergency treatment.

Chang is being treated under police supervision at the Binh Duong General Hospital.
