The CHILLING video showed the moment a man was arrested after allegedly cutting his wife’s throat and playing her favorite music while she bled to death.
Police body cameras captured 21-year-old Xichen Yang as he was arrested outside an Orlando, Florida apartment complex on June 21.
The body of Yang’s wife, Nhu Quaynh Pham, 21, was found in a pool of blood at the couple’s shared home, the Altamonte Springs Police Department said.
Yang was not present at the time.
Investigators said Yang’s employer called because he was late for work.
At that point, Yang allegedly admitted to killing his wife, prompting the employer to call the police.
Police managed to track down Yang, who was sitting in a red Subaru outside the gated apartment complex.
As seen in the video, he was ordered out of the car and immediately handcuffed and frisked by officers before being taken into custody without issue.
Yang was charged with first-degree first-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence.
During the arrest, Yang allegedly admitted to police that he killed his wife and gave details of the knife he used during the crime.
Police said after Pham died, Yang allegedly tried to clean up the pools of blood that had splattered around the apartment before heading to his car.
Pham had a “deep wound on the left side of her neck,” police said, and her abdomen had “pooled with blood,” according to Law & Crime.
Yang said “he could have stopped killing her,” but “that’s not how he was raised,” police officers claimed.
After Yang cut his wife’s throat, he dragged her into the bathtub, according to the arrest report.
He then “played her favorite music” and “held her hand” for about 10 minutes until she died, police said in the report.
Yang was reportedly getting cleaning supplies to remove the blood when his employer called him and asked why he hadn’t turned up for work.
He is being held without bail in the Seminole County Jail.
The victim, Pham, was originally from Vietnam. A GoFundMe was set up to raise money to help her family with funeral expenses and bring her body back to the country.
