WOMAN'S LIFE SAVED WITH HELP FROM MUM
A 26-year-old teacher in Kampong Chhnang tried to kill herself by swallowing drugs Tuesday, police and the woman’s mother reported. Police said the case was not a crime; it was a case of a woman who wanted to end her life. The woman’s mother said she is a teacher at a local high school. On Tuesday, the mother saw her daughter getting dressed to go to school. She appeared to leave, but then suddenly turned back and went to her bedroom. Puzzled, the mother entered the room and discovered her daughter lying on the bed. The mother sent her daughter straight to the hospital, saving her life. The daughter, however, refused to talk to police.

BROKEN-DOWN LORRY PLOUGHS INTO CAR
A 19-year-old man is dead and another person is seriously injured after a broken-down lorry ploughed into a parked car in Pursat province Tuesday, police said. Investigators said a man parked his car, as one does, in the middle of the pavement so he could dine at a local eatery. Shortly after, however, a broken-down lorry somehow smashed into the car, killing its driver immediately. When the owner of the parked car saw what happened, he hopped into his vehicle and fled the scene. Another person was sent to hospital.

BATTERED WIFE KILLS ABUSIVE HUSBANd
A 38-year-old woman has been arrested after she was accused of stabbing her husband to death in Preah Sihanouk province. Police said the wife reported that her husband always fought with her and the couple’s three children. She said her husband kicked her out of their shared house last month. When he asked her to move back in on Tuesday, however, she refused, which angered the husband. This time, she said, she could not handle the abuse. So she stabbed her husband with a knife. Police have sent the case to court.

MAN STABS WIFE, KILLS SELF; WIFE OK
A 55-year-old man killed himself after stabbing his own wife, police in Banteay Meanchey province reported. Police said the man became angry with his wife when she refused to cook him a meal on demand, so he stabbed her with a knife. The wife survived, however, after worried neighbours rushed her to hospital. After learning that his wife was not dead, the man walked into a field and stabbed himself to death. The wife reported that her husband was violent with her and her 5-year-old child almost every day.
