Two men arrested over ‘love triangle murder’

Two men were arrested in Kampong Speu province yesterday after allegedly stabbing a man to death in relation to what police are calling a love triangle.

Oral district deputy police chief Orn Yuthhong said the primary suspect, Sen Ly, aided by friend Pen Saran, had killed 24-year-old Orn Rotha when they came to the suspect’s home looking for Ly’s wife, Lorn Lom. Rotha and Lom had been involved in a long-standing tryst, which Yuthhong said drove the woman to cut off contact with her former husband and leave the home.

He also noted a previous complaint of violence lodged against Rotha by the suspects, who had claimed they had been beaten up when Rotha warned Ly to stay away from his now-separated wife. “After the victim beat the suspect and his mate, they filed a complaint for intervention, but the victim escaped until the day of the incident,” he said.

He reported that police found the victim at the site lying in a pool of blood with a knife sticking out from his chest.
