Double murder arrest

A man suspected of shooting dead two police officers in Phnom Penh was set to be charged today at the capital’s Municipal Court, Chuon Nar-in, chief of the Phnom Penh Municipal Police’s Criminal Bureau, said yesterday.

Chuon Narin said 41-year-old Nhean Thoeun, also known as Meang, was the main suspect in the double murder.

He was  arrested about 4:30pm on Friday  in the Doeum Mean commune, in Kandal province’s Takhmao district.

Police believe Nhean Tho-eun killed police officers Kong Vicheth and Roeun Po when they tried to arrest him last Sunday in the capital’s Tuol Kork district.
