‘Stubborn’ son-in-law pays price via axe attack

The concept of the punishment fitting the crime may have been lost on a Kratie town man who allegedly attacked his “stubborn” son-in-law with an axe on Sunday.

According to police, the suspect had chastised his son, 32, for failing to help his mother with housework.

When the obstinate offspring still refused to lend a hand, the suspect grabbed an axe and struck him on the shoulder.

A neighbour called the authorities, and the victim was hospitalized, but the ferocious father-in-law escaped. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
