Father hacked son to death with axe: police

A man was arrested yesterday and will be sent to court for allegedly hacking his 14-year-old son to death with an axe in Banteay Meanchey province’s O’Chrou district.
Deputy district police chief Sam Sokhen said yesterday that 38-year-old Pheng Sameth was arrested at home following a complaint from his wife after she found her son Meth Mey’s body lying on a hill behind her home on Wednesday in Souphy commune’s Kork Prech village.“It is an inhuman act,” he said, adding that the boy had been hit with an axe six times on his head, neck and body. Sam Sokhen said that neighbours of the family said the suspect was an alcoholic who beat his wife and four children.
