Taipei, Feb. 14 (CNA) Police detained a graduate student from National Taiwan University of Sport in connection with the killing of his teacher on Tuesday.

The family of the teacher, identified only by her surname Cheng (鄭), reported her missing on Feb. 6, shortly after she told them she would be traveling with a friend to Hualien in eastern Taiwan, but then failed to respond to their efforts to contact her.

Police tracked down to Chen Ming-feng (陳明鋒), 27, a graduate student at National Taiwan University of Sport in Taichung, after discovering that Cheng was last seen on the back of his motorbike riding from Changhua to Taichung that day.

Chen told police that the two had quarreled and he strangled Cheng. The next day he disposed of her body in an isolated mountainous area of Nantou County.
