Lover killed in 'accident', Vic court told

January 08, 2018

Hung An Vu has faced court via video link accused of murdering his partner's lover.

A fatal stabbing was prompted by the alleged killer's belief his victim was having an affair with his partner, a Melbourne court has been told.

Hung An Vu, 45, appeared before Melbourne Magistrates Court via video link on Monday charged with the murder of Hung Viet Nguyen, 44, at Sunshine West in August.

"He admits he wanted to scare her and the deceased, but he says the stabbing itself was an accident," prosecutor Ashleigh Harrold told the court.
