    VA - Corey Mattison, 37, murdered at his Ashburn home, 15 Jan 2015


    Minh Nguyen, 38, is known for helping launch Plaxo, an online address book and platform for quickly sharing and synchronizing contact details. The company was bought by Comcast in 2008.

    He was arrested Thursday night in Ashburn, Va., a suburb of Washington. Police there say he entered his ex-wife's home and shot Corey Mattison, the man she had just married. Two of Nguyen's children were in the townhouse at the time. Nugyen's ex-wife Denise was with their third child when she walked in on the gruesome scene...

    Rick Knutson, the firm's owner, said Mattison had privately voiced concerns over Nguyen's incessant interruptions during weekends with the kids. "Corey and his wife would go to a baseball game with the kids, and [Nguyen] would blow up," Knutson said. "He would try to prevent them from taking the kids anywhere. The guy seemed to be a little unstable."

    Neighbors said the shooting comes after months of strife between Nguyen and his ex-wife over child custody and visitation issues.

    Nguyen is charged with first-degree murder and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony. He is being held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.

    "I watched my husband lure a gunman out of the house... he sacrificed his life to save me and to put an end to the emotional turmoil my children and I endured," Denise Mattison wrote on a Facebook memorial page set up for her husband. "My husband is the greatest man I'll ever know."

    Search warrants in the case show that Nguyen had collected a considerable number of weapons at his home and indicate his blood is being tested for narcotics...

    It’s unclear in the documents whether Khoa arrived at the scene with her son, but investigators reported that the two live together on Tradewind Drive in Brambleton. Khoa told investigators that her son had more guns at their home. Results of search warrant show Nguyen had a veritable arsenal in that home.

    Law enforcement collected letters, computers, divorce paperwork, child custody paperwork, mobile phones, and a hefty list of guns, ammunition and related items. Investigators found ammunition in water bottles, a cooler and in bags all over the home...

    Silicon Valley app developer who claimed he was Facebook founder Sean Parker's partner gets life in prison for murdering the husband of his pregnant ex-wife

    A former social media pioneer has received a life prison sentence for shooting and killing his ex-wife's new husband.

    'There are no winners here today,' she told the network after Nguyen's sentencing. 'We're all losers. We came here without Corey and we go home without him. I just hope there will be some healing taking place on both sides. That's all I can ask for, pray for.'

    Nguyen had previously pleaded no contest to murder, malicious wounding, and breaking and entering.

    Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney for Loudoun County Joshua Steward criticized this decision.

    'In a guilty plea, you stand up and you recognize morally, if nothing else, "Yes, I am guilty, I did this and I deserve to be punished,"' Steward said according to NBC. 'No contest, you're essentially just saying, "Listen, I know if I went to trial I'd lose."'

    Judge McCahill went above the recommended 25-42 years for Nguyen and sentenced him to life in prison, ruling that he still posed a threat to Mrs Mattison and her family.
