Restaurateur kills friend and dismembers body because ‘she could not repay debt’

Tim Sophal chopped up her friend's body with a meat cleaver before dumping parts of it in a river in Cambodia.

A restaurant owner murdered her friend before chopping up her body with a meat cleaver and keeping some of the body parts in a freezer.

Tim Sophal, 35, was arrested on Monday, a week after her hairdresser friend Kim Yan Neang, 40, went missing in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Sophal, who owns the well-known Alamo Cafe, claimed she owed Kim money for months and rather than settling the debt, she attacked and strangled her friend to death.
