MAN THREATENS TO KILL FATHER-IN-LAW
A man who allegedly threatened to kill his father-in-law because he would not let the man take his wife back home was arrested in Kampong Chhnang province on Friday. Som Roang Tong district police said the suspect’s wife was recuperating from an illness at her father-in-law’s house when her husband burst in with a rifle and threatened to kill her dad. The father-in-law was able to make a hasty escape but could not avoid a torrent of shoes and stones that the suspect allegedly hurled at him as he ran to safety. Police say the man is a notorious alcoholic who has just been released from prison and offers no support to his wife.
