Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong, who previously faced the gallows for the murder of Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, was sentenced at the Shah Alam High Court on Monday to three years and four months in jail after pleading guilty to a lesser alternative charge.

Justice Azmi Ariffin, in his decision, ordered for the jail time to run from Doan's date of arrest, Feb 15, 2017.
