Vietnamese police on Thursday arrested a woman accused of stabbing her husband to death in front of a local court where they came to file their divorce.
Dinh Thi Hien, 45, reportedly got into a heated debate her husband Vu Quang Hien, 54, as they were about to leave the People's Court of Bu Dang District, Binh Phuoc Province in southern Vietnam.
Hien suddenly took out a knife and stabbed her husband repeatedly in the chest right in front of the court building. He died on the spot.
Hien was arrested at the scene.
She told the police she had brought a knife with her because her husband had many times threatened to kill her during recent conflicts.
The couple had divorced once in the past, and remarried in 2012. They do not have children.
 Police are still investigating the murder.
