Lu, 38, reportedly killed his wife and put her body in a suitcase which he dropped into the sea, the Liberty Times reported. On Jan. 10, the suitcase was found on a beach in Bang Phra, a resort in Chonburi Province, southeast of Bangkok.
Last Sunday, police arrested Lu at a rented apartment and found evidence he had bought “duct tape, cords and large plastic bags from a hardware store” in the area, according to the Bangkok Post.
The couple reportedly arrived in Thailand last August, with the wife, Liew (劉) , 33, giving birth to a baby later in the year. The fatal argument reportedly involved whether or not the child should have Taiwanese citizenship, the Liberty Times reported. [FULL STORY]
