I do tire of the "violent and porn movies" defense for murder and rape charges.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

The murderer of the woman defense official was sentenced to life imprisonment for premeditated murder, despite attempts by his lawyer to downgrade the charge to simple murder (without premeditation).
Investigation into the death of the murderer's cousin is not being pursued according to the police, as the death has been ruled as a suicide. The cousin was found with his throat slit three times and no knife was found at the scene.

Life Sentence for Killer of Defense Official
by Ouch Sony | December 22, 2016

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Wednesday sentenced a young man to life in prison for fatally stabbing female Defense Ministry official Ly Davy in broad daylight in June.
Mey Kimheng was convicted of premeditated murder over the killing of the 36-year-old Royal Cambodian Armed Forces major as she was walking alone near a market in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kok district.

--------

In July, while Mr. Kimseng was in provisional detention, his cousin, Keo Vuthy, was found with his throat slit in a Pur Senchey district apartment the cousins had shared.

Officials said the death was a suicide, but Keo Vuthy’s father, Keo Sothea, sought further investigation, believing his son was killed for telling police that his cousin was home when they came searching for him.

Mr. Sothea suspected that Mr. Kimseng’s father was involved in his death.

“We have collected information, questioned all related people and sent a report to superiors already,” [San Pet, Kakab commune police chief ] said, but added that his supervisors had not asked for any further investigation into the death.
