An adulterous wife was finally caught out by her husband when he found her with another man and filed a complaint to the police. Police have detained the cheating wife and her lover, having caught them in the act at a guesthouse in Svay Reing district, Svay Reing province. The husband, Lay Kong, 38, a motorbike mechanic, told police he had been happily married to his wife Loeung Dip, 34, for 12 years. The couple have three children.
