A Vietnamese woman accused of assassinating North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s half-brother in 2017 pleaded guilty to a lesser charge in a Malaysian court on Monday. Doan Thi Huong initially faced the death penalty if convicted of murder in Kim Jong Nam’s death, but a judge sentenced her Monday to three years and four months for voluntarily causing injury with a dangerous weapon. Huong’s lawyer said officials likely will release her next month after a sentence reduction for good behavior.
