Another drunken husband is behind bars after allegedly attacking his wife with a gardening hoe in Takeo province on Thursday, resulting in a trip to the hospital for her and a trip to jail for him.
The 47-year-old victim was speaking with a neighbour when she declined a boozy call from her husband to come home.
Growing angrier with each time she rebuffed his calls, he eventually picked up a hoe and struck her with its handle. The suspect said he was too drunk to control himself. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
