Ek Sarun, 65, and his wife, Chhiv Sothy, 61, were released on Monday evening and placed under court supervision, after guaranteeing 354 million riel, or about $88,500, for bail, the court said.

“The investigative judge decided bail them after they were charged with manslaughter and causing involuntary bodily harm,” said court spokesman Mann Boret on Tuesday.
