Ex-wives suspected in fatal stabbing

A 30-year-old woman died on Monday after being stabbed 17 times with a vegetable knife, according to Kampot provincial police.

Sieng Channak was discovered by her 10-year-old son in their blood-soaked bathroom in Kampot district, Mao Chan Makthurith, deputy chief of provincial police, confirmed.

“We believe [her] death was not caused by a robbery but a love triangle because the victim was a third wife and [her body] was inflicted with 6-7 serious wounds through her intestine,” Chan Makthurith said.

None of Sieng’s belongings were missing from her residence, he added.

Witnesses reported hearing screams and seeing a masked woman enter Sieng’s home after being dropped off by a motorbike taxi.

The weapon was found three kilometres from the crime scene, police said. They suspect one of her husband’s previous wives killed Sieng.

Police have not taken anyone into custody.
