TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – A Taiwanese man accused of having killed his Chinese wife in Thailand had been wanted for fraud on the island, reports said Wednesday (Jan. 15).

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]
