Wife poisons self after criticism
A pregnant woman committed suicide in Kampong Cham last week by using insecticide after her husband chastised her, local police said. Police said her husband ordered her to kill a duck and cook it for him and his friends while they drank. After cooking the meat, however, the husband accused her of not cooking enough food because she had saved some of the duck for her two children. She then killed herself by ingesting insecticide powder. KOH SANTEPHEAP
