A Chinese man was caught by local police on Sunday as he tried to flee after murdering his Vietnamese mother-in-law.

Xiong Zhuogen, 38, went to the southern province of Tay Ninh to fetch his wife, 19-year-old Truong Thi Hong Dao. Dao had left China in May because their married life was rocky and conflict-ridden.

On Sunday afternoon, Zhuogen discussed some money issues with his wife’s parents, which led to an argument. In anger he stabbed Dao's 45-year-old mother and continued to hit her with a cane after she collapsed, resulting in her death.

Zhuogen attempted to flee, but was caught by the police the same day.

No further information about the case was available immediately.
