Cambodian Deputy Police Inspector Arrested for Shooting Restauranteur Dead

Authorities in Cambodia have arrested on murder charges a police official accused of shooting a restauranteur in the head at point-blank range over delays in his food order.

Keo Chetra, 29, the deputy police inspector of Svay Rieng province’s Bavet city, allegedly shot Soeun Srey Ner, 38, the owner of the Daner Lucky Music restaurant on the night of Dec. 20 as he dined there.

Soeun died while she was in transit to a hospital in Vietnam. It was not immediately clear why she was being taken to Vietnam for treatment, but Bavet is close to the border with Vietnam and sources suggest that Vietnamese health facilities have a better reputation than local ones in Cambodia.
