A Herndon man is dead after allegedly being assaulted by his wife.

Town of Herndon police say that on Feb. 19, Thuan Tran, 79, was the victim of a domestic assault in his home in the 400 block of Patrick Lane in Herndon. Tran was transported to the hospital with life threatening injuries and his wife, Nhan Pham, 77, was taken into custody on scene and charged with malicious wounding.

Tran passed away on Feb 22, reportedly as a result of the injuries sustained during this incident.

His wife Pham is currently being held without bond at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.

On Feb. 26, Herndon police officials said they are currently working with the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office to amend Pham’s charges. “The charges for the domestic-aggravated assault will be amended at the next grand jury in Fairfax County in March," said HPD Lieutenant Steve Thompson.
