Police seek acid suspect

The wife of the first person to die from an acid attack this year is again a suspect in the crime and a war­rant has been re­­quested for her arrest, police said yesterday.

Kampong Cham provincial police chief Chhay Kim Sun said police had “changed minds” about the victim’s wife Chheng Mao, 50, but would not give further detail.

The commune police chief had earlier dismissed an account that named her as the perpet­rator of an acid attack that killed Sim Yi, 42, and injured his girlfriend.

The Post earlier reported that Chheng Mao had asked rights group Adhoc for help in finding her husband’s murderer.
