UPDATE: Eight men have been arrested for allegedly stoning a man to death on Street 1988 in Sen Sok district.
The motive is still unclear, but the victim was robbed of a gold chain and his money before the gang of assassins quit the crime scene. The man's wife said that as far as she knows, he didn't have any enemies.

10 years for murder. Somebody coughed up some serious dough, especially for that lone acquittal.

So the closest they could come to a motive was “a bad feelings between them?” Sterling police work. Sterling reportage.
