Khieu Thoeun told the police that he wanted to die because his wife, who has been living with her mother for the last five months, asked him for a divorce and refused to let their four-year-old son live with them.

FRISKY DRUNK HANGS HIMSELF

A 68-year-old man hanged himself after his wife refused to have sex with him in Por Kambo commune, Kandieng district, Pursat province Saturday. The man, who was intoxicated at the time, hanged himself from a house beam with a black robe. Witnesses said that the man's 11-year-old grandson discovered the dead man and screamed for help. The man's wife told the police that he always argued with her after drinking binges with his friends. She added that she rejected her husband's advances because she had a disease which did not allow her to have sex.
