Death sentence sought for Saigon woman abusing 8-year-old girl to death

According to HCMC People's Procuracy, Nguyen Vo Quynh Trang's behavior was dangerous, causing particularly serious consequences, and must be dealt with severely.

Therefore, it suggested that the jury grants her the death sentence, as heard at a trial in HCMC on Friday.

"Although the defendant was sincere during the investigation process, she was incapable of reform and needed to be removed from society," said a representative of the Procuracy.

It proposed that Trang, 26, be charge with "murder" and "abuse."

Trang and his fiance, Nguyen Kim Trung Thai, 36, had lived together for over a year, from the time Thai divorced his ex-wife in 2020. Since that day, Trang had frequently beaten the little girl and forced her to do chores, investigation found. When rods broke due to repeated beatings, she switched to wooden implements.

Thai also repeatedly refused to allow the biological mother to visit the girl, it has been reported.

On Dec. 22 last year, Trang beat the girl so badly she fainted. The girl was taken to hospital, but declared dead on arrival. Her wounds and bruises prompted doctors to contact police.

Autopsy results determined the girl had suffered a hematoma under the skin of her forehead, mild cerebral edema, and broken ribs.

Camera footage from Thai's home, recovered by police, revealed that on Dec. 22, the day the girl died, Trang had beaten her for hours using wooden sticks, her arms and legs. She also bound the little girl to a chair to "teach her a lesson."

Following the girl's death, Thai deleted all data from the cameras.

Later, he admitted to police he knew his lover often used rods and sticks to beat his daughter for "education" purposes.

According to prosecutors, Trang had acted out of "despicable motives" as she did not get Thai family's consent for marriage and Thai did not agree to have a baby with her. Therefore, she had vented her jealousy on Thai's daughter.

As for Thai, they suggested two-three years in prison for the crime of "abuse" and four-five years in prison for "concealing a crime."
