Fake general arrested; murder case reopened

A man was being investigated over allegations of killing his girlfriend after being arrested on Friday for masquerading as a two-star general, a Banteay Meanchey court official said yesterday.

Song Chhorvon, deputy prosecutor of the provincial court, said Seth Monday, 39, and Bo Mab, 42, were arrested and charged with illegal weapon possession and faking military ranks.

Last year, the murdered body of Seth Monday’s girlfriend was found in a pond wrapped in plastic. An initial investigation into the crime proved fruitless, but with Seth Monday’s recent arrest, authorities have decided to reopen the case.
