An Orlando area man was arrested after police say he cut his wife’s throat and then watched her die slowly as he played her favorite music. It’s also being reported that he tried to clean up the scene. The Altamonte Springs Police said that Xichen Yang was arrested on a first degree murder charge.
It all started when police got a call from Yang’s boss who told them that Yang told his son that he had just stabbed and killed his wife. Police entered the scene and found the victim in the bathtub with a deep slash in her neck and was pronounced dead on the scene. The police then entered the hallway where they found rubber gloves and cleaning solution.
According to the arrest report, Yang told police he cut his wife’s neck with a knife and she tried to crawl away towards a door. He then put her in the bathtub and began playing her favorite music and held her hand for about 10 minutes until she died. When he was asked why didn’t he stop Yang responded “it’s not how I was raised.”
Yang was taken to the Seminole County Jail on no bond.
