A Chinese man studying in the UK has been arrested for killing his parents when they banned him from heading back to Britain once the lockdown ended.
Huang Mouyang is suspected of murdering his lawyer father Huang and professor mother Chen in a dispute about him studying abroad, Cambodia News English reported.
The 22-year-old had been studying in the UK before returning to China temporarily during the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple were found dead in the dormitory of a school in Nanning city in Southern China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on 10 August.
Police believe that the bodies had been there for some days.
When the officers entered the dorm they found that the temperature was unusually low due to the air conditioning having been turned up, yqqlm reported.
Chinese investigators identified the couple’s son as a suspect.
They found that he had fled to Cambodia.
Mouyang was arrested at the Orussey I Hotel in Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh.
He has been sent to the Department of Immigration and now faces being deported to China.
