Wedding words lead to morning sword attack

Time heals all wounds, except when it comes to the burning jealousy of one man in Kratie town. According to police, the 30-year-old suspect percolated with rage when he saw another man speak to his girlfriend at a wedding on Sunday night.

He waited until morning, arriving at the man’s house with a samurai sword and a taste for vengeance not seen since Achilles went after Hector in the Trojan War. Unlike The Iliad, however, this epic didn’t end so dramatically. The suspect was arrested and sent to court. KOH SANTEPHEAP
