POLICE KILLING: Three men charged in cop’s death

POLICE KILLING
Three men were charged with premeditated murder in Kampong Cham provincial court on Tuesday in connection with the January 4 killing of a narcotics officer, court officials said. Yuk Rath Mony, an officer for the Kampong Cham provincial Anti-Drug Trafficking Bureau, was shot six times and beaten to death in an unknown location before his body was locked inside his Lexus SUV, found in Choeung Prey district about 100 metres from National Road 6 on January 4. Two of the accused are in police custody: Chhorn Sochea, a nephew of one of the victim’s two wives, and Soam Bolly, the victim’s brother-in-law. Both were arrested on Saturday in Kampong Cham town.
