A Taipei man faces homicide charges for allegedly stabbing and killing a motorist in New Taipei City on Friday, police said.

Police said that Wang Ping-hua (王秉華), 23, who lives in Taipei’s Neihu District (內湖), was transferred to the Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office, because prosecutors believed he was a possible flight risk.

The incident took place on Friday at about 10 pm, when Wang was driving his car with his wife in New Taipei City’s Sindian District (新店), investigators said, adding that the two were arguing over where to go to eat.

Surveillance camera footage showed a man police identified as Wang exiting the vehicle holding a 20cm kitchen knife, and approaching a man surnamed Lin (林), 33, who investigators said was sitting on his motorcycle waiting for his elder sister, a nurse who was finishing her shift at a care center for the elderly.    [FULL  STORY]
