Accused murderer attempts suicide

Mao Sreymom, 30, died in hospital after being cut in the throat with a knife by her former husband, Suon Vichet, 31, from whom she had been divorced for five months. Her husband then cut his own throat in an attempt to kill himself. Although he sustained severe injuries, he did not die, as he was rescued by villagers on time. The crime happened at the victim's house in Phnom Penh on Sunday afternoon. Witnesses said the couple, who have two children, divorced because the husband had an affair with another woman, and that he attacked his ex-wife because he was angry with her for getting involved with another man after their divorce.
