Man sent to court for beating father-in-law
A 25-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly beat his father-in-law unconscious with a wooden bat in Battambang province’s Battambang town on Friday. The suspect’s wife said her husband was an alcoholic and that she had been afraid to go home on Friday because she thought her husband would beat her. She said her husband had warned her that if she didn’t come home he would beat her father instead, a threat she had thought was empty. But when the suspect’s wife finally did return home, she found her father unconscious, she said. The suspect has been sent to court to face charges, police said.
