Gunman sent to court

A suspected murderer believed to have killed two hostages inlcuding a child during a shootout with police in Kampot province’s Dang Tong district on Wednesday will be sent to court today, while two of his accomplices remain at large. A trio of gunmen took a family hostage and killed an eight-year-old girl and her grandmother after police confronted them after responding to reports of suspicious behaviour. Two of the suspects escaped during the siege, but deputy police chief of Kampot province, In Chiva, said yesterday their wives would be sent to court on Friday to help locate the men’s whereabouts.
