The chairman of the board of directors at Kingmaker Footwear Group has died after being stabbed eight times in the head by a Chinese storekeeper.

Li Me You, 45, the Chinese storekeeper, attacked 63-year-old boss Chen Ming Hsiung over a work dispute.

The incident happened on April 15 when Chen Ming Hsiung accused Li Mee You of stealing shoes from the company. He responded by pulling out a knife and attacking the boss and two others in Chen’s office.

You was overpowered by the company’s security guards following the incident and was arrested by Binh Duong police a day later.

Kingmaker is a Taiwanese shoe manufacturer based in the Vietnam-Singapore Industrial Park in the southern province of Binh Duong, and employs 10,000 workers.
