A woman has been arrested for murdering her mother-in-law, in Yeongyang, North Gyeongsang Province.

The local police arrested the suspect, who is in her 30s and from Vietnam, on Friday on charges of fatally hitting the victim and abandoning her corpse on a farm road on Nov. 16.

The suspect told the investigators that she made the fatal attack, angered by her mother-in-law harshly scolding her over a phone bill.

The suspect has reportedly been on bad terms with her mother-in-law after her husband died of cancer four years ago.
