The Supreme Court yesterday upheld the 15-year jail term for a card dealer who brutally murdered her colleague with a knife at a Poipet casino in 2007.
According to the court, Sok Sokunthear, 27, stabbed fellow card dealer Khuth Chanroeun, 25, more than 20 times in the neck and body as the victim slept at the 5 Star Casino.
The court said Sokunthear plotted the murder because she suspected the victim had stolen her money. Her 2009 sentence from the Banteay Meanchey Provincial Court in 2009 was upheld by the Court of Appeal in 2010.
