CHILLING video showed the moment a man was arrested after he allegedly slit his wife’s throat and played her favorite music while she bled to death.
Police body camera captured Xichen Yang, 21, as he was arrested on June 21 outside an apartment complex in Orlando, Florida.
The body of Yang’s wife, Nhu Quaynh Pham, 21, was found in a pool of blood in the apartment the couple shared together, said the Altamonte Springs Police Department.
Yang was not present at the time.
Investigators said that Yang’s employer had called because he was late for work.
That’s when Yang allegedly admitted to killing his wife, prompting the employer to call police.

During the arrest, Yang allegedly admitted to police that he had killed his wife, giving details of the knife he used during the crime.

Police said after Pham died, Yang allegedly tried to clean the pools of blood splattered all over the apartment before going to his car.
Pham had a “deep laceration to the left side of her neck,” said police and her stomach had “pooled with blood,” according to Law & Crime.
Yang said “he could have stopped short of killing her” but “that was not how he was raised,” cops claimed.
After Yang slashed his wife’s throat, he dragged her into the bathtub, the arrest report shows.
He then “played her favorite music” and “held her hand” for around 10 minutes until she died, police said in the report.
Yang reportedly had gotten cleaning supplies to clean up the blood when his employer called him to ask why he failed to show up to work.
