It takes more than meat cleaver to split couple

A woman was the rare perpetrator in a domestic violence case in Kampot on Tuesday. Police said her 45-year-old husband had come home drunk yet again, which provoked a quarrel.

As luck would have it, the wife had also been drinking, which may be why she reached for the cleaver. A few well-placed chops later and her husband was in the provincial hospital.

But after the husband begged the police to forego legal action, they agreed. Instead, she will be “educated” and released. Rasmey Kampuchea
