In Brief: Monk charged over killing of nun

Banteay Meanchey provincial court on Tuesday charged a 68-year-old monk from Phnom Prasat pagoda in Mongkol Borei district with manslaughter in the death of a nun who was bludgeoned to death with a piece of firewood on Sunday. “I charged him with voluntary manslaughter under Article 32 of the UNTAC law after the monk confessed,” said deputy court prosecutor Long Cheat. The monk faces 15 years in prison.
