  1. Wife Kills Spouse with Axe Blows to Groin


    Nov 15, 8:57 am ET

    PHNOM PENH (Reuters) - A Cambodian woman who murdered her husband by axing him repeatedly in the groin before running off with her son-in-law has been sentenced to 15 years in jail, officials said Friday.
    But 35-year-old Chhoeun Sovann, from Kompong Thom province 100 km (60 miles) northeast of Phnom Penh, is not yet behind bars.

    Six years after the murder, prosecutors say they cannot find her. The verdict was handed down in absentia.

    In a case shocking even by Cambodian standards, Chhoeun Sovann set about battering her husband to death with the blunt end of an axe, the blows falling mainly on his groin.

    "She fell in love with her son-in-law, which was against her husband's wishes. Finally, she had to kill her husband so she could escape with her lover," female presiding judge Sim Samoeu told Reuters.

    "It is totally unacceptable in Cambodia that a wife should kill her husband by smashing his genitals," the judge said. "After hours of deliberation, I decided to punish her with 15 years in jail."

    She also awarded the victim's family compensation of two million riels ($500) -- nearly double the average Cambodian annual wage.

    Under Cambodia's notoriously erratic and ineffective judicial system, trials in absentia are relatively common as are cases of convicted criminals enjoying their freedom for years after receiving hefty jail sentences.


    I LOVE the quote from the judge. Totally unacceptable. As if murder in any way is acceptable? AHHH, maybe it is in Cambodia.

    Moral of the story. . . don't smash hubby's genitals!!! But for just 5 years in jail you can jam a stick up his butt 'till he gasps his last breath!

    I agree I wonder if the husband mistreated her. The trials without the person being present are also very scarey.

    If he were a little more well endowed, she would have only have to have hit him once. It's not her fault he had a little schwang.

    Lorena Bobbit comes to mind, I wonder what her husband did to her to make her chop up the jewles?
