Angkor murder: Suspected killers in custody

Two suspects were arrested yesterday in connection to a grisly murder-robbery within the Angkor Archaeological Park in Siem Reap on Tuesday.

The victim’s body was found on the roadside in Nokor Thom commune on Tuesday afternoon after her throat was slit with a meat cleaver, local police said.

Duong Sokha, director of the provincial crime office, said two men had been detained for interrogation.

“The suspects knew the victim and killed her for her [new 2013 Honda Dream] motorbike,” he said.

Suspects Ret Sophearom and a man only identified as Seu, both 22, had met the victim, 20-year-old Chun Vorn, while she worked at a restaurant in Siem Reap town, Sokha continued.

Prak Chanthoeun, the provincial deputy military police chief, said that Vorn was in a relationship with Sophearom, who had previously used her motorbike to work as a motodop.
