Son allegedly kills own father

Two men were charged in connection with the killing of their 47-year-old father on Sat­­­­­urday, and police are sear­ching for a third son accused of committing the murder.

Sokhom Ra, 26 and Sokhom Thida, 22, were charged by Kratie Provincial Court on Sat­urday with helping hide Sok­hom Davy, who alleg­edly re­peat­­edly struck his fath­er, Phlong Sokhom, with an axe, Lieutenant Colonel Huoth Lim­­heang, provincial chief of the serious crimes unit, said yesterday.

The men in Snuol district’s Khsoem Krao com­mune fell into an argument with their alcoholic father, who was prone to cursing them and their mother, on Friday, Limheang said.
