Kampong Thom, Cambodia News: On December 14, 2018, Lieutenant Teth Samnang reported a tragic case of a jealous husband who committed suicide after shooting his wife with five gunshots at 07:30 pm on December 13, 2018, in Balang Keut village, Steung Sen city, Kampong Thom.

The suspect, 47-year-old Heng Sovann, used a pistol that he had kept since he was a soldier to shoot his wife, Sun Pov, 37 years old, in the back. After killing his wife, he shot himself in the head. Both victim and suspect died immediately at the scene.

According to the victim's sister, the couple were always arguing because the husband was crazy with jealousy because he suspected that his beautiful wife was unfaithful. The arguments were violent, and the man had previously attempted to kill the victim, but the family had intervened.

However, despite their problems, the couple remained together, and the domestic violence continued until yesterday evening, when, after they had been drinking, the man finally took his gun and killed them both.
Police determined that the case was a murder-suicide caused by the husband's jealousy.

After forensic examination, the family took the bodies to prepare the two funerals.
Photos of the tragedy are on the darknet news forum.

F*cking sad !
It’s hard to win an argument with a smart person, but it’s damn near impossible to win an argument with a stupid person.

Kampong Thom, Cambodia News: The husband, Heng Sovannara, called Choung, was a veteran soldier with the Brigade No. 12, but more recently he was in the business of selling instant noodles, coffee, and car wash. The couple had two children, a son and a daughter. His son was present in the house, and was witness to the scene when his father shot dead his 37-year-old wife, Sun Pov, and killed himself.
The son, David, said that he was sleeping when he heard his mother coming home from a wedding and his parents started to argue loudly, then there was a bang, and a lot of gunshots. He got up to see what was happening, and saw his father and mother struggling, and his mother falling, then suddenly he heard another explosion when his father shot himself in the head.

Hmmm, in one account it says Sun Pov was 37, in another account 25. Quite a big difference. Which is it? I say she appears to be 37, the daughter appears to be 10 y/o at least. Unlikely that Sun had a child at 15 y/o.

So was she 37 or 25? Looks 37 to me.
The only good thing in this event is that the scumbag offed himself.

Agreed. It appears that the discrepancy has been corrected, so yeah, 37.
