Authorities in Vietnam’s Dien Bien province will prosecute a man who has been accused of robbing and killing a university student this month. Vuong Van Hung, 35, allegedly robbed and killed Cao My Duyen, 22, on February 4, Viet Nam News reported. At around 6:30am on that day the victim was reported missing while she was on her way to deliver chickens to a customer in the Thanh Truong Ward of Dien Bien Phu city.

The police also interrogated Tran Van Cong, the owner of a truck where the victim’s blood was found.

At 10:30am on February 7, the victim’s body was found at an abandoned house in the Thanh Nua Commune. Investigations revealed that she had been strangled to death.

On February 10, Hung, who is homeless, was arrested and admitted that he killed Duyen to steal her belongings, police say. A motorbike, an ATM card, eight chickens and a cage were seized by the police. The next day, Duyen’s mobile phone and a SIM card used by the suspect to call the victim were allegedly found at a house belonging to Hung’s uncle.

Major-General Sung A Hong of Dien Bien police said any information that is distributed on social media may not be completely accurate and could affect the victim’s family. The authorities say that there may be other forces at play in the case who are yet to be identified.

Hung has four legal violations and three crimes on his rap sheet.
