Family squabble leads to drunken stabbing

A 43-year-old woman was seriously injured and hospitalised on Monday after being stabbed by her brother-in-law.

The victim, who shares a home with her attacker in Kampot’s Angkor Chey district, had told the suspect, who had come home inebriated, that he was crazy, and accused him of getting drunk on a daily basis.

Incensed by the allegations, the drunkard grabbed a knife and skewered his accuser. A neighbour witnessed the crime and called the police, who are on the hunt.
