A young man in Hanoi is facing murder charges as he slashed a neighbor to death after the latter failed many times to repay him VND1 million ($50), VnExpress reported Wednesday.
Bui Dinh Minh, 26, killed Bui Tho Ngo, 32, on Tuesday right at the door of the latter's house. Police said Ngo had six knife slashes on his back, chest and arms, police said.
Ngo bled to death and Minh handed himself over to the police.
Minh said his kiosk selling drinking water and mobile phone cards was not doing well, but Ngo refused to return VND1 million that he'd borrowed in August 2009.
Ngo had also bought several items from his kiosk on credit, Minh told the police.
The father of a 3-month-old baby said he'd slashed Ngo with a knife out of anger.
