Two women charged with murder of Kim Jong Nam

She’s not laughing out loud anymore.

Doan Thi Huong, known as the “LOL girl” for wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the acronym, appeared on the verge of tears as a Malaysian court charged her and Siti Aisyah with the murder of Kim Jong Nam, The Guardian reported Wednesday.

Jong Nam was the estranged half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, who many have speculated was behind the Feb. 13 assassination at Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The women stand accused of applying VX — a deadly nerve agent — to the face of Jong Nam, causing him to suffer an agonizing death.

Huong, 28, of Vietnam, and Aisyah, 25, of Indonesia, were both dressed casually as they were escorted into the courtroom in handcuffs to hear the charges read out in their native languages, the Daily Mail said.

Afterward, the women were ordered to put on bulletproof vests and ushered away by heavily armed guards, The Guardian said.

They did not enter a formal plea, but Huong’s lawyer later told reporters that his client told the court in Vietnamese that “I am not guilty,” The Mail said.

The attorney, only identified as S. Selvam, described Huong as being “nervous as she is facing a murder charge.”

If convicted, the women face death by hanging.

The suspects told investigators that they were duped into the assassination plot, believing that they were playing a prank on Jong Nam.

After the attack, Huong was caught on video surveillance at the airport wearing the “LOL” shirt — and her image was beamed around the world, leading to her arrest.

Aisyah was busted after her boyfriend ratted her out to the authorities.
