told police the six forced and opened the front door of the house and shot her husband

four times with an AK-47 then escaped after stealing a mobile phone. Police said

robbery was not a reason for the murder, it is a revenge attack as Samang had recently

argued with people.

found dead in the early morning on the sidewalk of National Road 5 in Boeng Por village,
