Suspecting his wife had been unfaithful, a farmer allegedly chopped his wife to death with a machete on their Pailin province corn farm on Monday.
Dom Sovanna, 42, was charged yesterday with murdering his 43-year-old wife, Ourng Mom, said Nob Srey Yuth, deputy chief of the Pailin provincial police.
“He used a machete to chop his wife’s face and head many times,” Nob Srey Yuth said.
Commune police chief Ouk Kea said the murder in Pailin town was likely caused by jealousy, as the man always quarreled with his wife and often accused her of adultery.
