Court upholds death sentence for accomplice in Binh Phuoc massacre

The Supreme Court Monday rejected an appeal against the death sentence by a man who, together with an accomplice, killed six members of a family in the southern province of Binh Phuoc last year.
In dismissing his appeal, the court said Vu Van Tien, 25, was an active accomplice of Nguyen Hai Duong, 25, the mastermind of the murder-robbery in July 2015.
“Without Tien’s help, Duong couldn’t have carries out the crime. So Tien must be responsible for the consequences of the case.”
The court also dismissed the appeal of Duong’s friend Tran Dinh Thoai, 27, to have his 16-year sentence reduced. Thoai bought the knife with which Duong killed the six people, and failed to report Duong’s conspiracy to the authorities.
Duong has not appealed against his death penalty.
