I played her favorite music, held her hand for about 10 minutes until she died – Yang
A middle-aged man, Xichen Yang, on Thursday appeared before court over first-degree premeditated murder and destroying evidence in the alleged death of his wife, Nhu Quynh Pham.
The Seminole County man appeared before a judge for the first time after U.S. police said that he murdered his wife for allegedly burning his passport.
Yang was said to have played his wife’s favourite music, while “killing her slowly.”
The two had only been married about a year, the police said.
Altamonte Springs police also confirmed that the man confessed to the murder “and some disturbing details.”
But Yang however denied the method of the killing. He told investigators that he did not stop before killing her because that was not how he was raised. “I am the type of person who goes all the way,” he said.
WFTV reported that it was Yang’s employer that called police Tuesday after he didn’t show up for work.
WFTV gathered that Yang had told his boss that he was angry at his wife, that he had committed an unspeakable act and was cleaning it up.
According to court documents, officers swiftly responded to the couple’s apartment on the corner of Ballad Street and Ronald Reagan Boulevard, U.S. to found Pham with her throat slit.
Police said Yang then admitted to putting his wife in the tub and “played her favorite music” and “held her hand” for about 10 minutes until she died.
It was also gathered that Yang had previously been arrested for hitting his wife in Orange County but the charges were dropped.
