Family’s crossed wires lead to cleaver attack

A hard-of-hearing drunkard with a short fuse gave his brother-in-law a severe beating on Monday.

The 33-year-old was drinking with friends at his Koh Thom district house in Kandal, when he overheard a row between his sister and her young husband about proper respect for their deceased father.

Overhearing the conversation, the inebriated man thought he was the one being disrespected, causing him to grab a cleaver and slice his brother-in-law. The victim was taken to hospital, while the perpetrator escaped. NOKORWAT
