Police arrest 2 in murder for hire, seek third
NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans police have arrested two people for hiring someone to kill a man.
Arrested were 35-year-old Charity Nguyen and 35-year-old Khoi Quang Hoang, WWL-TV reports. Authorities are still seeking a third person that they say Nguyen and Hoang hired to kill 44-year-old Lien Nguyen.
Charity Nguyen was Lien Nguyen's girlfriend before his death. He was kidnapped from his home and found lying on the ground with gunshot wounds to his head and chest, blocks away in eastern New Orleans. His hands were tied behind his back.
Police spokesman Frank Robertson says an officer was tipped to the pair's involvement.
Charity Nguyen is charged with principal to second-degree murder, which means she helped someone commit the murder. Quang Hoang is charged with solicitation for murder.
