Wife gets 30 years for gory killing

Svay Rieng Provincial Court on Tuesday convicted Kuo Chandany, 21, of premeditated murder for first electrocuting, then cleaving and slitting the throat of her husband last August, court vice prosecutor Sam Sarun said yesterday.

“After questioning her for more than three hours, Khy Chhay, the presiding judge, sentenced the aforementioned woman to 30 years in jail, and ordered her to pay 40 million riel [about $10,000] to the parents or family of her husband on the charge of premeditated murder,” Sarun said.

According to Sarun, on August 10, 2013, Chandany electrocuted her husband, then struck him three times in the head with a cleaver before dragging him out of the house and slitting his throat. Chandany then began
crying, and told police that she had found her husband murdered and robbed.

Police, however, found bloodstains inside the house and she reportedly confessed to the act, saying she was angry about her husband’s philandering and neglect of their daughter.
