HUNGRY MAN ACCUSED OF SERIOUSLY BEATING WIFE
A 29-year-old man in Siem Reap province has been arrested and charged in connection with the violent beating of his wife last Thursday. Police said the man became enraged when, after inquiring about dinner at around 4pm upon his return from working in the rice fields all day, he was told by his wife that their meal was a long way off. In response, the man took a large piece of wood and allegedly struck his wife, who is 20 years his senior, six times in the head. The woman has been taken to hospital, and police have sent the case against the man to the provincial court.

LEMONGRASS DISPUTE A MOTIVE FOR MURDER

The victim’s daughter said she found her mother’s body underneath a bamboo tree roughly 100 metres from their house.
