Three Cambodian construction workers have been arrested for allegedly slitting the throat of a countryman for showing off.
Saen Nidchai, 31, See Soklee, 33, and a 23-year-old identified only as “Pom” were captured Feb. 9, a day after police discovered the body of Kha Ian, 52, in a wooded area in Huay Yai Muk near Lake Mabprachan.
Saen Nidchai, See Soklee, and “Pom” have been arrested and charged with murder.
Police said the three laborers confessed to killing their coworker at the Vineyard housing estate following a drunken brawl.
The suspects claimed that the dead man instigated the fight by using foul language and boasting of his higher standing in the group. Fists soon flew, leading to deadly violence.
