Father killed son: police

A drunken father murdered his 2-year-old son with a hoe early yesterday morning, according to police, who have arrested the suspect and asked the court to press murder charges.

Som Sak, chief of the Serious Crimes Office in Kampong Speu province, said yesterday that police officials arrested Seoun Sorn, 34, in the early hours at his home in Samrong Tong district.

Sak said he asked Sorn why he had killed his son, and was told that he was drunk and dreamed his wife loved another man, an idea that angered him so much that he hit his son in a blind rage.

“The suspect used a digging hoe to hit on his son’s head to kill him immediately,” Sak said. “The suspect looks like he has mental health problems and he often has some strange thoughts. Actually, his wife did not have another man."

He will be sent to provincial court today.
