Wife killer gets life sentence: A North York man has been sentenced to life in prison after stabbing his wife to death and then trying to kill himself. Phong-Nien Chau, 37, walked into the bedroom where his wife was dressing for work and slashed her once in the throat with the X-Acto knife. He then slashed his own throat, Rosen said. When ambulance and police arrived, he was lying across his wife's dead body and again gouged at his own throat with the knife, the lawyer said. He was rushed to hospital and survived. - Toronto Star (Oct 25, 1991)
