ARREST MADE OVER LOVE-TRIANGLE KILLING
Two men in Kratie town have been arrested in connection with the murder of the husband of one of the accused’s rumoured former lovers in Ratanakkiri province last month. The pair were nabbed while trying to escape to Kratie, after having changed modes of transportation several times in a bid to elude authorities. It is believed that Phuong Bun, 30, was having an affair with the wife of Bean Phous. Once the affair ended, Phuong Bun decided to kill Bean Phous. After the arrests were announced, the wife of the victim denied ever having had an affair with either suspect.

A 45-year-old man was killed on Saturday in Kandal province’s Saang district after being chopped in the head with an axe, in what police said was an apparent revenge attack. The victim’s wife said that at around 4am, she awoke to a sound akin to “a coconut falling from a tree”. Her husband then kicked her in the legs, and she turned on the light to find him covered in blood flowing from a deep wound to the head.
