Two charged for child's murder, attempted rape

Two men charged with murder over the death of an eight-year-old girl in Pursat province were sent to court yesterday and may face life in prison.

Din Sen Ny, 20, and Ty Kosal, 18, were arrested on Friday after police found the girl’s body about three kilometres from her house in Phnom Kravanh district’s Prangil commune, district police chief So Sahong said.

The girl had been missing for two days, he said.

Sahong added that when questioned by district police, the two suspects had admitted having killed the girl, saying they had sought revenge against the girl’s mother after she had argued with them 10 days before.

“They attempted to rape the girl, but she cried out too loudly, so they killed her quickly by slitting her throat,” he said.

“We have finished questioning them, and have sent sufficient proof to accuse them of slitting the girl’s throat to the court today.”
