Man kills brother at sister’s wedding: police

A 17-year-old teenager died after allegedly being stabbed by his brother at their sister’s wedding party last Thursday in Takeo’s Samrong district.

Moeung Sarun, the district police chief, said Orn Nit, 23, had stabbed his younger brother after a heated argument at the wedding in Choeung Kuon commune’s Trapaing Vihear village.

The teenager had been screaming at his uncle when Nit tried to quiet him down.

Nit then picked up a knife and stabbed his brother in the chest, Sarun said.

The brother died on the way to hospital. Suon Phon, the provincial deputy police commissioner, said the suspect had been arrested and was charged in court last Friday.

He has been sent to jail to await trial.
