Suspected revenge killing leaves two dead

A junk shop owner and her daughter are believed to have been killed by a former employee in Battambang province on Tuesday night, said Battambang military penal police chief Lach Pros.

According to Pros, suspect Chhou Mouy, 54, followed the daughter home before strangling her in her bathroom, then hid in the mother’s bedroom before stabbing her to death upon her arrival.

“We believe the murders to be caused by revenge, because the owner had previously fired Chhou and evicted him from the workers’ dormitory,” said Pros.
