From LOL shirt to bulletproof vest, Kim Jong Nam murder suspects go to court  | Toronto Star

TOKYO—Because of a grainy security camera photo that went viral online, she is now known to many as the LOL assassin.

But as Doan Thi Huong left a courthouse in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, after being formally charged with the murder of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s estranged half brother two weeks ago, she had a very different look — red, puffy eyes and a bulletproof vest.

For most people, those first images of Huong were as shocking as they were bizarre — apparently showing her lunging at Kim Jong Nam from behind in a crowded airport terminal while wearing a T-shirt emblazoned in big black letters with LOL, an acronym for laughing out loud.

Suspects in VX nerve agent attack on Kim Jong Un’s brother charged with murder

Poisoning of Kim Jong Un’s half brother caused death within 20 minutes: Malaysia

Huong, who is Vietnamese, and an Indonesian woman were formally charged with murder Wednesday.

Her light-brown dyed hair disheveled and frizzy, Huong was led away from the courthouse handcuffed to a female Malaysian officer.

In court she seemed calm. But as she was taken away wearing jeans and a yellow shirt under the protective vest, she looked out at a bank of photographers and journalists with her face puffy and her eyes red and teary.

The Indonesian suspect, Siti Aisyah, arrived dressed in a red T-shirt under her vest and also wore jeans. Outside court, she appeared more sombre, her eyes downcast. She looked tired and her lawyer said afterward she was teary.

Malaysian police say the two women rubbed VX nerve agent onto Kim’s face, possibly at the behest of North Koreans. Kim was dead within 20 minutes.

Huong, 28, and Aisyah, 25, women deny they intended to kill Kim. They say they were hired to play what they were led to believe was a harmless prank on him for a TV show.

If found guilty, they could be executed.
