Man killed over $12.50, police say

Two suspects who allegedly beat a man to death and burned his corpse after a fight over an unpaid debt of about $12.50 were sent to court to be charged yesterday.

Five suspects were held for questioning by police following the incident in Por Sen Chey district’s Choam Chao commune on Saturday, but only three were charged with a crime.

Police said yesterday that a fight broke out among the five suspects and the deceased over 50,000 riel two of the men claimed the victim owed.

The two suspects then allegedly beat the victim to death with wooden sticks in a plot of grassland near Veng Sreng Boulevard before burning the body and fleeing the scene.

“They are all vagrants living on the street,” Mom Hor, of Choam Chao commune police, said of the suspects.

Three of the five detained were released after questioning and will be called as witnesses in the case, said Khim Saran, a Por Sen Chey district police inspector.
