Tainan police yesterday questioned a man named Chen Chih-hsien (陳智賢) in connection with the death of a woman surnamed Chung (鐘), while prosecutors asked a court to place Chen in judicial detention.

Chen, 54, on Tuesday morning visited Chung, 45, and they started to quarrel over gambling debts and other personal issues, prosecutor Chuang Shih-chin (莊士嶔) said.

A preliminary investigation and testimony from acquaintances suggested that the couple had been together for more than a year, but they argued frequently over money and other issues, Chuang said.

Chen told police that he strangled Chung in a fit of anger and, after realizing that he had killed her, tried to commit suicide by cutting his wrists and chest.    [FULL  STORY]
