Murder suspects nabbed

Three suspects were arrested yesterday in connection with the murder of a wealthy construction store owner in Kampong Chhnang province’s Samaki Meanchey district, authorities reported.

Provincial police chief Ath Khen said that the trio – two men and one woman – are thought to be accomplices to the murder. His force is still looking for the killers, he said, declining to provide further details.

The body of 53-year-old Chan Heang, a wealthy construction store owner, was found in a bag dumped on the side of national road 5 on Monday in Svay commune.

The day before, authorities had discovered his burned and abandoned Land Cruiser on the same road three kilometres away.
