The wife of the first person to die from an acid attack this year is again a suspect in the crime and a warrant has been requested for her arrest, police said yesterday.
Kampong Cham provincial police chief Chhay Kim Sun said police had “changed minds” about the victim’s wife Chheng Mao, 50, but would not give further detail.
The commune police chief had earlier dismissed an account that named her as the perpetrator of an acid attack that killed Sim Yi, 42, and injured his girlfriend.
The Post earlier reported that Chheng Mao had asked rights group Adhoc for help in finding her husband’s murderer.
