Teen faces murder, rape charges

A 16-year-old faced Banteay Meanchey provincial court yesterday on charges related to allegedly shooting a 42-year-old man from Mongkol Borei district’s Rahat Teuk commune then raping his 13-year-old daughter.

The teen male was arrested on Saturday for allegedly shooting Net Sol in the head with a rifle on Wednesday evening while the victim was guarding farmland owned by the suspect’s father in Malay district, three kilometres from O’Ampil village, where the suspect lived.

Khouth Chan Hang, a Malay district police official, said yesterday that two rifles were seized during the arrest.

“The suspect was sent to the police station after his arrest at about 10am,” Chang Hang said, adding that it was a “cruel crime and rape”.

The two had no previous issues with each other, according to Sao Bun, a Malay district police chief, who told the Post that after killing Sol, the suspect allegedly travelled to his home in Rohat Teuk commune and raped his daughter.

“After the suspect’s arrest, he was taken to the police station and the police had the girl identify the suspect,” Bun said yesterday.

Provincial court officials could not be reached for comment yesterday.
