Reports - Plaxo co-founder charged with murder


The co-founder of social networking startup Plaxo has been charged with first degree murder in the slaying of his ex-wife's current husband.

Minh Nguyen, who created social media site Plaxo with Napster pioneer Sean Parker, was arrested last Wednesday in Ashburn, Virginia for entering the home of his ex-wife and shooting her husband, according to the Loudon County Sheriff's Office. Although the report did not cite specific names, published reports identified the victim as Corey Mattison.

Mattison's wife was not home at the time, but the sheriff's office said two children were in the residence. His wife returned home with one other child, where they walked in on the incident unfolding.

Nguyen is being held with no bond at the Loudon County Adult Detention center. The investigation is ongoing, according to authorities.
