A young U.S. Army soldier has allegedly fled the country shortly before his wife’s body was found in a trash bin.

Authorities in Indiana say the soldier flew from Colorado -where he was stationed at Fort Carson- to Indiana to murder his wife.

21-year-old Peter Can Bawi Lian is accused of murdering Khuang Par, whose body was found in an Indianapolis dumpster on December 23.

According to the Indianapolis Star, Lian had previously choked his wife during an argument. He reportedly yelled, “I’m going to kill you,” in their native language, Burmese, before releasing her neck.

Liam was arrested in November for the domestic incident and his 27-year-old wife was issued a protective order on December 3rd.

On Wednesday, Liam was charged with murder in Par’s death but police say he fled the country on December 22nd to Thailand.

Liam has also been charged with military desertion because he was supposed to report back for duty at Fort Carson on December 26.
