The four men arrested for the murder of a Singaporean pastor and school principal in Kampong Speu’s Chbar Mon district last Monday were charged with murder last Friday by the provincial court.
The suspects – Tong Sophal, 24, Chhen Laleu, 27, Ou Milihoung, 20, and Keo Savuth, 32 – were construction workers building the home of the murdered woman, Wendy Ng, 55. Police alleged Sophal was the killer but charged all four with murder.
“But a hearing date has not been set yet,” provincial court prosecutor Mok Dara said. Ng was the newly appointed principal of Hope International School and a pastor in Singapore.
She was living in the staff dormitory while her home was being built. The men allegedly broke into her room in search of staff salaries. Ng’s church in Singapore released a statement Friday.
“This has come sudden and shocking to us,” senior pastor Lawrence Lee said.
