Takeo man accused of burning ex-wife

A man who allegedly threw a wok of hot frying oil at his former wife in Takeo province’s Prey Kabbas district on Sunday was charged with intentional violence yesterday, local police officials have said.

Sem Socheat, the director of the provincial crime office, said that the man was arrested hours after the incident.

“The suspect’s family tried to negotiate with the victim, but we have to stick to the law. If they want to negotiate with the victim, they should do it at the court,’’ he said.

Court officials could not be reached to confirm the charge.

Chum Chheun, Prey Kabbas district police chief, said the suspect, 23-year-old Yeu Da was drunk when he entered the house of his ex-wife, Sak Maly, 18, and attacked her.

Fortunately, Maly only suffered light injuries as she had just changed the oil in the pan, Chheun said.
