A man has stabbed his wife and her suspected lover to death during a jealous rage in Ho Chi Minh City.
Police in District 8 confirmed on Sunday they had taken N.V.D., 47, into custody for murder.
The victims were D.T.H.D., 46, who was his wife, and N.T.T., 31.
Preliminary information showed that D. had talked on the phone with his wife before being overwhelmed with jealousy on Saturday night.
D. suspected that his wife was having an affair with T., thus he decided to look for the man.
After spotting T. on Me Coc Street in District 8, D. attacked him with a pair of scissors.
T. ran away for a short distance before collapsing on the ground and succumbing to his wounds.
D. returned home following the incident and stabbed his wife with the same weapon as soon as she came back to the house.
The wife was brought to a hospital for emergency treatment but passed away later that night.
D. eventually turned himself in to local police.
