TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A suspect allegedly involved in the death of a man in Hualien last year was extradited back to Taiwan on March 22 for further investigation, the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) said.
The male suspect surnamed Cho, 62, is believed to be the chief suspect in the murder of a man surnamed Cheng in March 2013, the CIB said in a released statement.
According to the CIB, Cheng was found dead at a farm in eastern Hualien County on March 7, 2013. An autopsy later showed signs of foul play.
Further investigations indicated that Cho may be a chief suspect because he was in a romantic relationship with Cheng's girlfriend, surnamed Yang.
Cho allegedly killed Cheng during a physical conflict after the latter found out that Cho was engaged in relations with Yang, police said.
In an attempt to avoid arrest, Cho took a plane and left Taiwan for Hong Kong on March 11, 2013 before he ultimately went to hide in Sichuan province. Police in Sichuan recently arrested Cho.
