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.

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.
