Jealous husband sought in shooting of two men

A man is being sought by Pursat provincial police officials for shooting two of his friends dead on Monday in an apparent act of jealousy.

The suspect, Chin Sreng, 23, shot the men, Soup Pril, 31, and Kuch Sith, 39, after witnessing them having dinner with his wife at his home.

Chin Sreng followed the victims to their home after the dinner, shooting one of them as he slept in his bed and the other in the back as the man tried to run for help, according to Phnom Kravang district police chief Pich Sopheap, who said the two houses stood about 200 metres from each other.

Pich Sopheap said the two victims were friends from Kampot province who had moved together to Phnom Kravang district.  

He added that Chin Sreng has a number of wives, and that the woman who was dining with the victims was his “first wife”.
