Man cut spouse’s throat, played her main tune and held her hand as she passed on: cops

A Florida man has been captured for homicide after he purportedly admitted to cutting his significant other’s throat — and afterward playing her main tune and holding her hand as she drained to death in a bath.

Xichen Yang, 21, was arrested Tuesday on charges of first-degree murder and messing with proof in the merciless killing of his significant other, Nhu Quynh Pham, Altamonte Springs police said.

Police said that not long before 9 a.m. Tuesday, officials were dispatched to a location in the 900 block of Ballard Street to lead a government assistance check.

At the point when the officials entered the condo, they found Pham lying in a “pool of blood” in the bath.

“Pham had a profound cut to the left half of her neck which had blood running down from it,”

the report expressed. “Her stomach was additionally pooled with blood.”

Paramedics who were called to the home articulated the lady dead at the scene.

Police expressed that they recuperated a couple of pink elastic gloves on the floor and a jug of cleaning sanitizer.

Xichen Yang admitted to slashing his wife’s throat and then holding her hand while she died in a bathtub, according to police.

Yang was not in the apartment when police arrived, but he was apprehended a short time later.

During a police interview, Yang allegedly admitted to slitting his wife’s throat in a fit of rage.

The 21-year-old told detectives that before the killing,

“he could feel himself getting more and more angry … and that he could have stopped short of killing her.”

When cops asked the murder suspect why he did not stop himself, Yang replied

“that was ‘not how he was raised’ and that he is the type of person who always ‘goes all the way.’”

The arrest report stated that after Yang slashed Pham’s throat, he took her to the bathroom.

“He placed Pham in the bathroom tub, ‘played her favorite music’ and ‘held her hand’ for what he estimates to be approximately 10 minutes, until she died,”

police wrote in the report. At no point did he call 911 for help, authorities said.

Yang then began to wipe his wife’s blood off the walls and floor, police asid.

Detectives subsequently interviewed Yang’s employer at a pool maintenance company, who told them that when he called Yang early Tuesday and asked why he had failed to show up for work,

“Yang said he was upset with his wife, Pham, because she had burned his passport.”

When the employer slammed Yang for being irresponsible,

“Yang went on to tell him that he had actually done ‘unspeakable’ things and that he killed his wife,”

cops wrote.

Yang was previously arrested on domestic violence charges after an incident involving his wife, which took place in January 2022, ClickOrlando reported.

Yang is being held at the Seminole County jail without bond. He is due in court for his initial appearance Thursday afternoon, followed by an arraignment on Aug. 2.
