Two men were arrested yesterday over the death of a woman who was fatally struck in the neck by flying shards of broken glass and a meat cleaver during a wedding party in Kampong Speu.
Odong district police chief Khem Samon said suspects Ou Chhath, 31, from Kraing Chek commune, and Rak Sethmor, 24, from Prey Krasaing commune, were in police custody, but authorities were still hunting other suspects in hiding.
“They were both arrested after the father of the bride pointed them out, but Ou Chhath denied the allegation and said he is a victim,” Samon said.
Meanwhile, another wedding scuffle occurred in Takeo on Wednesday, when the groom and friends hospitalised three guests after they beat them with chairs.
Traing district police chief Phan Phal said the groom, Chou Rim, 25, and three others were arrested in Angkanh commune.
“The groom claimed the three men forced his bride to drink wine and kissed her. When he asked them to stop they beat him. So he and his friends took the chairs to beat them and protect themselves,” Phal said.
