Tailor murdered in own home with scissors

A 57-year-old woman was stabbed to death with a pair of scissors at her Kampong Chnnang town home on Sunday, police said.

Hul Veasna, the town’s deputy police chief, told the Post yesterday that the victim, U Sothavy, a tailor, was killed in what appeared to be a robbery.

The suspect used scissors that Sothavy had lying around for work.

“We suspected that it is killing and robbery case, because the equipment such as hand phone, laptop and other stuff were in disorder at her home after the incident,” he said.
