A court in the central province of Nghe An on Wednesday sentenced a woman to five years in jail for selling a local woman to China.

Tran Thi Huong, 35, was indicted for selling a local woman identified as Lo Thi T., to a Chinese national for 70,000 Yuan (US$11,250) in 2009, Tuoi Tre reported.

Huong had asked T. to join a trip to a town near the Chinese border and took her across without her knowing.

She reportedly sold T. to the Chinese woman for the purposes of serving as her son's wife. Under the arrangement, T. was abused by the family of her purchaser, the victim told the police after managing to escape back to home in late July of last year.

T. is carrying her second child with her Chinese husband.
