My God, I hope he doesn't get a slap on the wrist but bet he gets a temporary leave of absence with pay.

At about 12am on Thursday, Phoris Storann was driving his Range Rover with his wife from Phsar Doeumkor to his home in Chbar Ampov district. When Storann was in front of the now-closed Rock Entertainment, Nakry, who was drunk driving a Lexus 330, chased after them and stopped in front of their car, accused the victim of overtaking him.

Nakry ordered Storann to get out of his car and apologise to him, but Storann refused and denied that he did not overtake Nakry. At about 1am in Chbar Ampov district’s Nirot commune, Nakry managed to stop the victims again. Nakry walked toward the victims’ Range Rover and fired five bullets completely destroying the rear window.

Storan’s wife fainted and was taken to a hospital emergency room. The latest update confirmed this Friday that she had a miscarriage of the three-month old baby.

Wow, caused a miscarriage. Good to see stuff like that making the news nowadays. Not so long ago it would have been more word of mouth than anything else.

"Attempted murder and use of unauthorized weapons".
Uh, what about the actual murder that took place, you know, when the woman miscarried her baby due to the severe shock and trauma resulting from having 5 hollow points blast past her head.

I'm not sure how far along the woman has to be in her pregnancy, but in some jurisdictions in the US, I think if the unborn baby dies during the course of a felony being committed on the mother, then that's murder.

But then again I don't know what the 'Khmer Culture' stipulations are regarding unborn babies.

May 6, 2019
General held over attempted murder
Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Saturday charged a senior penal police officer working at the Ministry of Interior with attempted murder and illegal use of weapon over a violent shooting incident last week.

The accused, Brigadier General Duong Nakry, 47, is the deputy chief of the Penal Police Department at the Ministry of Interior.

Brig Gen Nakry, who was arrested on Thursday, is now facing up to 10 years in jail if convicted. He is currently being held in prison pending trial.

Captain Sok Rith, a penal police officer at the Municipal General Crimes Department, yesterday said Brig Gen Nakry admitted to firing five bullets, but denied it was an attempt to kill the victims.
“He confessed that he shot the victim’s car because he was angry with him for fleeing and not settling the argument at the district police station,” Cap Rith said. “But he did not intend to kill the victim.”
