Boy arrested over girl’s rape, death

Police in Prey Veng province’s Preah Sdach district arrested a 17-year-old pagoda boy yesterday for allegedly raping and killing a 10-year-old girl in a pagoda there, police said.

According to a district police official who spoke on condition of anonymity, the suspect had been arrested about 10:30am yesterday at the Kork Sampov pagoda, in Preah Sdach’s Chraing Svay commune.

About 6:20pm on Monday, police said, the suspect allegedly grabbed the victim — who also lived at the pagoda with her grand-mother — and dragged her to a bathroom.

There he strangled and raped her until she died, then took the girl’s body and stuffed it in a large water jar in the bathroom, they alleged.
