The husband and wife, who were estranged, did not getting along, and Khai showed up at Chuon’s home, where she lives with their two daughters.
Khai knocked on the door, but his wife and two daughters refused to let him inside. Khai responded by using a handsaw to cut the lock open.
He got inside the home, and they began to fight.
The husband was the first to use his fists, and repeatedly beat his wife despite desperate attempts by his daughters to stop him.
Chuong screamed for help and grabbed her husband's testicles.
She then jumped on his abdomen while squeezing his testicles.
After squeezing his testicles for about five minutes, Chuong stopped the attack. Police officers who arrived at the scene, found that Khai had already lost consciousness.
He died on the way to a hospital. An autopsy revealed that he died of suffocation as food got stuck in his windpipe during his wife's attack on testicles.
