A Kampot man will go on
trial in Kampot provincial court this morning, charged with the killing
of Thom Saroeun, 46, and her 3-year-old granddaughter, Thai Srey Thim,
in an acid attack in January 2008. Mon Ton, 27, was arrested on January
9 this year for the two killings, which took place in Angkor Chey
district's Dambaeuk Khpuos commune. Mom Ton's mother, the wife of a
village chief, and another relative are also wanted in connection with
the case, but both remain on the run.
