Woman charged in injection death

Svay Rieng provincial court has charged a 31-year-old woman with premeditated murder after police accused her of killing a 6-year-old girl with an injection on June 5. Kuy Sopheap, deputy chief of the provincial Serious Crimes Bureau, said Chhey Phuong Pisal injected the girl after being approached by her mother, who mistook Chhey Phuong Pisal for a doctor. The girl died that evening. “The woman confessed and said she never learned about being a physician,” Kuy Sopheap said. “She just copied how her father did the procedure.” The charge was brought on Tuesday.
