Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Suspect arrested for murder of his girlfriend in Phnom Penh guesthouse.

5 August 2017
Image
- On the night of August 2, 2017, a woman was found dead by the cleaner at "Monika guesthouse", Street 460, Toul Tum Pong I, Khan Chamkar Morn, Phnom Penh. The victim was identified as Iv Sokha, 27, a factory worker in Koh Nouth commune, Niroth commune, Khan Chbar Ampov. On 5 August, her boyfriend was arrested by police at Kilometer 12 commune, Koh Toch district, Teuk Chhou district, Kampot province, and has been taken into custody for questioning.

It appears that the man lured his girlfriend to a room rented at Monika Guesthouse where he had sex with her. (Apparently it was consensual sex since two used condoms were found at the scene.) He then killed her, and stole her motorbike and $40 that her mother had just given her, so the motive appears to have been robbery.

The victim. RIP

In the Kampot case, police on Saturday arrested a 19-year-old man accused of killing his girlfriend in Phnom Penh on Tuesday.

Hem Chandara, deputy commander of Kampot provincial police, identified the suspect as Khorn La, a construction worker living in Kampot province’s Teuk Chhou District.

Mr Chandara said the suspect is accused of bringing his girlfriend, Y Sokha, 26, to a Phnom Penh guesthouse to have sex on Tuesday, where he killed her after she revealed she was going to marry another man.

“The suspect got angry at the victim for getting engaged to another man,” said Mr Chandara. “He then killed her by strangling her.

The suspect, identified as Khanla, 19, is a fireman living in Kilo 12 commune, Koh Pei district, Teuk Chhou district, Kampot province. The victim, identified as Y Sokha, 26, is a co-worker, residing in Koh Nara Village, Sangkat Niroth, Khan Chbar Ampov, Phnom Penh.
The suspect admitted that when Y Sohka told him that she was going to marry another, he became crazy with anger and slammed the victim against the wall until she was dead. Then, when he saw what he had done, he jumped on his motorbike and escaped to Kampot.

Well, I'm not excusing his behaviour but she should probably have just texted him the details later. I'm surprised about this because you can get a load more money selling the bitch if she's untouched. Once she's soiled she ain't worth shit
