WOMAN KILLS  MAN BY BITING HIS PENIS

Vuth Voeun, 38, was found dead last month, after his wife Sy Hoeun had allegedly bitten and squeezed his penis in anger after an argument. The argument happened after Sy Hoeun came home from the couple's rice paddy in the Krorkor district of Pursat province to find her husband and his friends drinking 15 litres of rice wine, which she wanted to sell. They had an argument that evening, and the next morning Vuth Voeun was found dead. No report was made at the time, but the district police interviewed the wife when rumours of the molested penis had spread. They could not confirm the cause of death because the body had already been cremated.
