The wife of a murdered reporter turned herself in to Long An police Sunday, after suspicion had centered around her for nearly a month.


Police say that Tran Thuy Lieu, 40, has yet to tell police why and how she killed her husband, 50-year-old Le Hoang Hung, on January 19.


Hung, who worked as a reporter for Nguoi Lao Dong (Laborer), was set on fire while he was asleep in his bed. He was rushed to a local hospital by his family, but died ten days later.



To catch a killer
Police previously identified Lieu as one of 20 suspects in the case. During the same period, local papers reported on a domestic dispute between the couple regarding household finances.


She was also reported to have racked up gambling debts totaling up to VND1.5 billion (US$75,000).


During the past month, she has repeatedly denied all accusations.


The Investigation remains underway.
