Default Phuc n' Bich: Who would have guessed it would end in disaster?

Oanh Truong suspected something sinister was about to happen when she saw an "unhappy" Phuc Nguyen, her brother-in-law, standing by the living room table of their Applewood Place S.E. home, court heard Wednesday.

Phuc had been arguing with his wife and her younger sister, Bich Truong, the night before and again on the night of Oct. 2, 2006, likely over her alleged relationship with Quang Huy (Benny) Nguyen.

Her brother Qua Ton was, at that moment, driving Benny to the home to discuss with Phuc the so-called love triangle.

So, she told Crown prosecutor Susan Pepper at Phuc's first-degree murder trial, she phoned her brother in an unsuccessful attempt to stop them.

Seconds after Ton and Benny stepped inside the front door of the home, there was a fatal struggle and Benny would quickly die from stab wounds to the heart and liver.

"He said, 'Hi Phuc, I'm Benny,' " an emotionally charged Oanh Truong testified. "Right away, there was a struggle."

Benny, 35, staggered across the room and collapsed from the wounds, likely from a razor sharp meat cutting knife Oanh had purchased from the Cargill meat-packing plant.

Under cross-examination, the witness agreed with defence lawyer Balfour Der that she never saw a weapon and that she could not say who initiated the struggle.

Oanh Truong said earlier that her sister Bich had spent the night before at a hotel following an argument.

Phuc, 29, and Bich, 33, had been married in Vietnam in 2004 and had a young daughter who came with Bich to Canada when she was eight months old.

Phuc joined them here in September 2006, just five days before the slaying, and found out about his wife's alleged relationship, which he tried to stop.

Bich Truong, 33, gave evidence earlier on Wednesday in a voir dire to determine if her relationship with her husband is irreconcilable and she could thus testify against him.

However, Court of Queen's Bench Justice Peter Clark ruled, under a provision of the Canada Evidence Act, that the issue was unclear and declined to allow her to testify against her husband.

Bich Truong told Pepper, when asked about the chances of reconciling their marriage, she was leaning to "divorce him."

Under cross-examination by Der, though, she agreed that if her husband was not in jail, she may or may not stay married to him.

It appeared at times, however, the woman was hesitant to say anything bad against her husband.

Bich Truong said she moved back to Vietnam with their daughter, now 21/2, not long after the homicide and returned to Calgary last month.

Court has heard Phuc repeatedly tried to get Benny to stop seeing his wife, but he wouldn't do so.

After speaking on the phone at 11:30 that night, Benny agreed to come over to their home and discuss the issue. He arrived 17 minutes later.

Phuc fled to Edmonton and flew to Toronto, where he was taken off the plane by police and charged with the killing.

The trial continues today.

I used to work with a guy who's name was Phuc Dang. No bullshit. Had it on the plaque thing outside his office and I couldn't walk past it without laughing to myself.
