In Brief: Heng Pov sentenced to 18 more years

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Friday sentenced Heng Pov, the capital's former police chief, to 18 years in prison for conspiring to murder the editor of Koh Santepheap newspaper, court officials said. Already serving 74 years for various murder, extortion and kidnapping convictions, Heng Pov's total jail time now stands at 92 years, but could top the century mark if he is convicted in a 10th case that is now being investigated.
