MAN ACCUSED OF KILLING GRANDMA
A 25-year-old man is suspected of killing his own grandmother in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district Wednesday after she refused to sign her property over to him, police said. A few days before the killing, the suspect pressured the 72-year-old grandmother to sign over her house, police said. When she refused, he allegedly strangled her and used a cleaver to slash her head until she was dead. He also seriously injured the victim’s servant during the attack before making an escape. Police are hunting for the suspect.
