A man who deliberately ran over his wife and her lawyer after a court hearing Monday is expected to face multiple murder charges after his wife died last night.
Monday, July 17 Hung Tang-hsing (洪當興), 44, attended a court hearing in Tainan District Court, where his wife, Lee Yi-hui (李怡慧), agreed to divorce and requested custody of their children.
