Sometimes moving in together just isn’t the right choice. Two brothers-in-law living with their wives in a house in Kampong Chhnang town got into a heated scuffle on Saturday night, ending with one of them, 38, allegedly hacking the other, 23, with an axe.

The younger brother was injured in the arm and sent to hospital, police said, while his alleged attacker confessed, although he claimed he acted in self-defence as his brother-in-law was about to shoot him with a bow and arrow. KOH SANTEPHEAP
