Followup: $2 million bail for suspect in December High Point murder, ex-boyfriend of victim’s daughter

Bail is now set at $2 million for the 20-year-old White Center man arrested Saturday (WSB coverage here) on suspicion he killed 46-year-old Nga Nguyen in her High Point home in December. Probable-cause documents identify him as the ex-boyfriend of Nguyen’s daughter, and say he has a history of “stalking” her. He was interviewed shortly after the killing, the documents say, and denied having been in the home recently – but investigators say fingerprints and DNA evidence at the scene matched his. The documents say that after being arrested Saturday and being read his Miranda rights, he confessed to breaking into the Nguyens’ home on High Point Drive on December 14th and killing his ex-girlfriend’s mother, who the Medical Examiner said died of blunt-force head injury and strangulation. Prosecutors have until Wednesday to file charges.

  3. WTF- would any reason be good enough. Clearly a sociopath he was, it usually doesn’t end well when someone is a stalker.

  7. I am so sorry for the loss to the family and the community. She was a very nice lady working to make it through life in a respectable manner and always ready to stop and chat when the opportunity arose. I’m so sorry.
