Takeo man accused of drunken murder

A man charged with raping and murdering a woman in Takeo province has claimed she broke her neck following consensual sex.

The suspect, identified as Prach Meng, 42, said Luy Na, 36, died after the pair had been drinking at her house in Tram Kak district’s Taphem commune. Meng said they had had sex prior to Na falling over drunk and breaking her neck. The woman died from her injuries on the way to hospital.

However, authorities believe Meng inflicted the injury when he became angered by her refusal to engage in repeated intercourse, after the pair had previously had consensual sex once.

“The suspect raped and killed the woman, so the court charged him,” said Takeo provincial prosecutor Sem Socheat yesterday.

The estranged wife of Meng, who is the mother of his five children, previously filed for divorce on the grounds of his unreasonable demands for sex.

According to an unprocessed divorce application made two years ago, following the birth of their fifth child, Meng demanded sex five to six times per day.
