Woman official stabbed to death on the street.

Post by Anchor Moy » Wed Jun 22, 2016 12:51 pm

It was on the corner of Sts 219 and 156. The woman was repeated stabbed in broad daylight in front of many witnesses. Sounds like a psycho, maybe a jilted lover. (I'm speculating.)
Defense Official Murdered in Broad Daylight

A Defense Ministry official was stabbed to death outside a busy market in Phnom Penh on Tuesday morning by a helmeted assailant who fled on a motorbike and remains at large, according to witnesses and police.

Ly Davy, a 36 year-old major in the ministry’s military service department, was walking alone near the northwest corner of Depot Mar­ket in Tuok Kok district’s Phsar De­pot I commune when an un­identified assailant stabbed her repeatedly in the chest at about 9:45 a.m., commune police chief Sdoeng Sarith said at the scene...

Major stabbed to death in Tuol Kork district

Wed, 22 June 2016
Khouth Sophak Chakrya

A major with the Ministry of Defence was stabbed to death by an unknown assailant in the capital’s Tuol Kork district yesterday morning as she was walking down the street to buy food, according to Phsar Depot II commune police chief Sderng Sarith.

Sarith identified the victim as Ly Davy, 36, and said the suspect had been riding a motorbike. “She was stabbed to death with a vegetable knife in the back, on the left side. The knife pierced the heart and she died immediately,” Sarith said, noting that the case did not appear to be a robbery as nothing was taken.

“It might be a spite-driven case,” he added.

Just a bit of bragging that my theory of the psycho jilted lover has been confirmed :

He said during police questioning Mr. Kimheng initially denied the allegations, however after police showed him the evidence, he admitted to murdering Ms. Davy and said he did it because of unrequited love.

“He loved her, but the victim did not love him. She looked down on him and always spat on him every time they met,” he said.

Holy hell. He's not even "jilted", since they were never lovers; but definitely psycho. He just thought that he was "in love", and killed her out of frustration. A 21yo student falls for a 36yo military officer, amazing that they weren't made for each other. :roll:

A university student charged with murder appeared at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Saturday over the death of a Ministry of National Defense official who was stabbed to death in broad daylight on a busy Tuol Kork district street last week.

Deputy prosecutor Ngin Pich said 21-year-old Mey Kimheng, a first-year mathematics student at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, was charged with “premeditated murder” under article 200 of the Penal Code.

Colonel Hun Sothy, chief of the district police, said Mr. Kimheng who was living in Tuol Kork’s Phsar Depo I commune, was arrested last Wednesday over the killing of his neighbor, 36-year-old Major Ly Davy, who was stabbed multiple times as she walked along street 219 at about 10:30am last Tuesday.

He said Mr. Kimheng was arrested after police identified him on CCTV recordings of the incident and matched his clothing, motorcycle and a wound he sustained during the attack.

Mr. Kimheng admitted to the murder during police questioning, claiming the victim constantly looked down at him and spat on him every time she walked past him.
Mr. Kimheng could face life in prison, depending on the court’s verdict. He is now in custody and awaiting trail.

Man’s Throat Slit After Revealing Location of Wanted Cousin

BY SEK ODOM | JULY 8, 2016

The cousin of a young man charged with murdering a Defense Ministry official late last month was found with his throat slit three times Wednesday morning in a Phnom Penh apartment in what officials are calling a suicide.

Keo Vuthy’s father, however, has filed a complaint calling for further investigation, saying his son likely fell prey to a revenge attack after giving police the whereabouts of his cousin, who was promptly arrested.

Well, this is one hell of a mixed-up tragedy. It could be Hamlet.
It all started when Mey Kimheng was arrested for the brutal murder of a woman, Ly Davy, who had rejected his advances. (https://www.cambodiadaily.com/news/defe ... ht-114440/)
Following this event, Ke Vuthy,the cousin of the suspect, was found with his throat slit 3 times; suicide according to the police, murder by the hand of his uncle Mey Sarith, according to the victim's family. The family of Ke Vuthy say that he was killed for telling the truth about the relationship between his cousin,Mey Kimheng and the murder victim, Ly Davy. They blame police corruption for the suicide conclusion.

Read all about it here, and make sense of it if you can, thanks to this article by the Khmer Times:

Dead Student’s Family Seeks Inquiry and Justice
Khmer Times/May Titthara Friday, 09 September 2016
Although medical student Ke Vuthy, 25, was found with his throat slit three times on the morning of July 6 in Phnom Penh, police concluded he had committed suicide.

On Wednesday his father asked local rights group Adhoc to liaise with authorities to investigate the case again and to prove his son’s death was not suicide.

Ke Sothea, a medical official with the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces, maintains the murderer is his own brother, Mey Sarith.

“My brother killed his nephew, my son, because my son named his cousin Mey Kimheng [Mr. Sarith’s son], a first year math student at the Royal University, as a suspect in the killing of a female military official near Depot market in June,” he told Khmer Times.

Mr. Kimheng was charged with the premeditated murder of 36-year-old Ly Davy, a major in the Defense Ministry’s military service department, and is still awaiting trial.

Mr. Sothea yesterday claimed his brother had been angry and disappointed that his son had told police about a long history of incidents between his cousin and the victim, instead of trying to hide and protect him.

“Mr. Sarith was frustrated, and then got angry and blamed my son and then threw him out of his house,” he said.

Mr. Vuthy had been living with his relatives, next door to Ms. Davy, at the time of the murder.

Mr. Sothea said his sister-in-law had called him to tell him his son had committed suicide by an overdose of pills, but once he arrived at their house in Por Senchey district, he found his son’s bloody body in a room with blood spatters on the wall. At this point the police had not been called, he said.

“My son died in the house which had only Mr. Sarith and my son inside, so why didn’t he report it to the police?”

Mr. Vuthy’s mother, Chum Sokroeun, claimed that the first police on the scene had concluded that her son had been murdered, most likely by his uncle. But they later changed their statements, claiming that upon investigation, it had been a suicide, caused by the stress of being associated with Ms. Davy’s murder.

“They changed so fast because of corruption with the police. My brother-in-law Mr. Sarith bribed them with money. Until now, all the evidence is at Por Senchey district police office. They haven’t sent it off for further investigation by experts.”

She said that despite her husband filing complaints with the Interior Ministry and municipal court to investigate the case further, they had heard nothing.

Yim Saran, the Por Senchey district police chief who worked on the case, declined to comment.

“I’m busy with a meeting,” he said and was unreachable afterwards.

According to the initial police report on July 6, Mr. Sarith told police he discovered Mr. Vuthy’s body after he did not respond to calls and went to his room to check on him. He denied having killed him.

“I am a good person, so I have nothing to be afraid off, because I have fed him since he was born,” Mr. Sarith reportedly told police.

The report noted that despite claims that Mr. Vuthy had killed himself with a knife, there was no knife at the scene and Mr. Sarith had blood on his trousers. They took him in for questioning.

However, the next day, district police said it was suicide, based upon investigations by municipal police and medical officials attached to the court. Mr. Sarith was released without charge.

Adhoc human rights monitor and investigator Soung Sen Karona said Mr. Sothea’s complaint was now being studied.

“According to what the victim’s father has said, and his complaint, we believe that there are many points which need to be checked again,” he said.

“Such as, if Mr. Mey Sarith was at home with the victim only, why didn’t he report the case to the police?”

He also noted claims that Mr. Sarith had threatened to kill his nephew by cutting his throat after he told police about his cousin.

“And if we look at the cut throat, it’s all the way to the bone, which means a lot of strength was used. If Mr. Vuthy had cut himself, he would have only cut a vein.”

Once all the information has been investigated, Mr. Sen Karona said they would liaise with relevant authorities to raise concerns and possibly move forward with a new investigation. He also offered to provide a lawyer.

Follow up on the murder of a woman committed in broad daylight, in a busy PP street last June. Murderer puts the blame on violent movies, the victim, and anyone but himself.

Alleged Killer Blames Actions on Violent Movies
by Sek Odom | December 10, 2016

A man accused of fatally stabbing a female Defense Ministry official on the streets of Phnom Penh asked a judge on Friday to downgrade the charge against him as he was mentally ill and had watched too many violent movies.

“I know I was wrong to have killed her, but it was unintentional. Please, I ask the court to reduce the penalty,” pleaded the defendant, Mey Kimheng, at his trial for premediated murder at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court.

Ly Davy, 36, a major in the ministry’s military service department, was walking alone near the Depot Market in Tuol Kok district in June when a helmeted man stabbed her repeatedly in the chest with a kitchen knife and drove off on a motorbike.

Mr. Kimheng, a 21-year-old freshman at the Royal University of Phnom Penh and the victim’s next-door neighbor, confessed to the attack, claiming to have taken revenge for years of being spat at, according to police.

In September, Mr. Kimheng was assessed by a doctor from the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital and was found to be suffering from memory loss, said his lawyer, Kim Veasna.

“My client had a mental illness,” Mr. Veasna argued at trial. “My client killed because he had watched too many violent movies.”...
