Luu Hoang An, 38, was arrested in Nha Trang in central Vietnam seven days after splashing acid on a woman and causing her death.

An was arrested by police from the southern Binh Duong Province on Saturday, facing murder charges.

The arrested man said that the victim, a 37-year-old pork seller in Binh Duong, had verbally abused his girlfriend and so he wanted to take revenge.

On Feb. 25, An prepared acid, got on a motorbike and waited for the woman to return home from the market. He splashed a container of acid directly on her face and body.

The victim fell on the ground and was taken to the hospital by locals but she did not survive the attack.

An sold his motorbike and tried to escape by traveling through different localities. He eventually went to Nha Trang, where he was arrested.
