Five charged with murder of two cops

Five men were charged with murder in a provincial court yesterday after being implicated in the slaying of two military police officers, who were run over by a Lexus allegedly ferrying the suspects from a club.

The victims, Chheav Samnang and Oub Sopheaktra, both in their 20s, were hit and killed in Sen Monorom’s Spean Meanchey commune in the early hours of Sunday morning after a night out, according to authorities, who say that an argument with the suspects led to the fatal altercation at around 1:30am.

“The suspects are accused of murder,” vice prosecutor So Vuthy said.

Five of the men were arrested on the same day as the alleged crime, but police are still hunting an additional suspect they believe was behind the wheel. The suspects have been identified as Khim Samnang, 23; Oeurn Sam Oun, 22; Pheap Pros, 23; Ly Thou, 20; and Sreng Panha, 24.
