Fiery passion leaves man singing the prison blues

Love, according to Johnny Cash, is a burning thing.

But one drunkard’s attempt to follow the man in black’s advice landed him in a jail cell on Tuesday in Kampot’s Teuk Chhou district.

According to witnesses, the man set fire to the house he lived in with his wife in a booze-induced fit of jealousy, reducing both house and its contents to cinders.

His wife reported him to the police, who arrested the hothead that day.
