Ten-year sentence: Husband guilty in his wife’s death

A construction worker was sentenced to 10 years in prison yesterday for murdering his wife, whom he accused of fraternising with young men in their Phnom Penh village.

Nguyen Chan Sa, 26, from Meanchey district’s Chbar Ampov II commune, murdered 21-year-old Van Thitou after an argument late at night on February 2, the court heard.

Presiding judge Suos Sam Ath said at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court hearing that Chan Sa stabbed and slashed Thithou to death.

“The court convicts Nguyen Chan Sa to 10 years on the charge of intentional murder,” the judge said.

Tep Bora, chief of Chbar Ampov II commune police, said police had arrested Chan Sa the following day.

“He got into arguments with his pretty wife almost every day. He was jealous of her because she had contacted other young men,” he said.

Chan Sa and his defence lawyer could not be reached for comment yesterday.
