"Possesed" father brutally murders son

A man in Kampot was arrested yesterday over the brutal murder of his seven-year-old son, police officials said.

Kem Veth is accused of slashing open his son’s stomach, severing his left arm and cutting out his left eye before burying the remains.

Chhouk district police chief Prom Veasna said the boy had been murdered on Wednesday.

“I asked the suspect the reason why he killed his son, but he just said he did not know that he killed him because he felt he was possessed by an evil spirit,” he said.

He added that Veth had led police to the boy’s arm and eye.
