A 28-YEAR-OLD man murdered his wife before killing himself in Kampong Cham province on Saturday after the couple argued, police said yesterday. Rin Sopheak killed his wife with a cleaver in Prey Chhor district while she was sleeping, before using it on himself. The couple were found dead in an embrace, said district police chief Soun Rose. The pair, who married three months ago, argued regularly. Police said the wife had demanded a divorce. “Their parents called them back from Phnom Penh to their home town in Kampong Cham province in order to reconcile them again, but they died before they could reconcile,” he said, adding that other people should not follow the man’s example.
