WOMAN HAS SEX WITH A COW-SELLER

Hor Kimeng, 40, was caught by her husband Chin Ly, 42, while she was having sex with his cow-selling business partner, Tech Leng, in the forest in Kandal province. When her husband confronted Hor Kimeng about the affair, she told him that she had been having sex with his friend since August 30 of this year. Hor Kimheng also told her husband that she did not want to live with him any longer because he failed to provide her with good sex.  Chin Ly said that Tech Leng has now told the neighbours about having an affair with his wife. "Tech Leng teases me which makes me feel embarrassed," he said. Chin Ly also said that he was very upset with the village chief and the police for not arresting Tech Leng and ignoring the problem.
