Senior gets beaten by disgruntled couple

A 64-year-old man and his 25-year-old wife went to town on a neighbour yesterday. Cops said the couple had feuded with their neighbour in Takeo’s Trang district over the dividing line between their two properties.

When the 70-year-old began digging up property they believed theirs, an argument swiftly escalated to the physical, with the septuagenarian managing to strike the wife once in the leg before the duo went into overdrive and beat him unconscious with sticks. The couple of the year is now awaiting trial. KOH SANTEPHEAP
