A man from Quang Nam Province, central Vietnam has been accused of murdering his five-year-old daughter by throwing her into a river after having a heated argument with his wife over an alleged affair.

Nguyen Tan Hung, vice-chairman of the People’s Committee in Tam Hai Commune, Nui Thanh District, confirmed early on Thursday morning that local police had apprehended 30-year-old Tran Van Vien following the incident.

Preliminary information showed that Vien had an argument with his wife at around 7:30 pm on Wednesday.

The wife had visited Nui Thanh Town to run her small business but did not return home during the Lunar New Year holiday, which took place in early February.

Vien suspected his wife to have an affair while she was away.
