On the 23rd of February 2020 in Stung Meanchey (Cambodia), a 32 year-old man was murdered with an axe as he slept. According to the neighbours, he argued almost on a daily basis with his wife and mother. The three lived together, and the young wife ran a shop. The mother, still angry after the last round of arguing, approached her son as he slept. With an axe in hand, she hacked him 4 times in his face and head. The wife was oblivious to what had happened to her husband as she had been asleep in another room. The couple's seven year-old daughter, however, had witnessed the whole thing. The mother told her daughter-in-law that she had just murdered her own son, and then left. The wife panicked and fled to her neighbour's home with her daughter. The neighbour went to the young lady's house and was met with the bloody corpse of the husband. The police were immediately called to the scene. The mother is still yet to be found and arrested. It's said that she is mentally ill, and was regularly angry and violent.
