Pursat province: A domestic violence took place causing a woman to grab and pulled her husband’s penis to bite and squeezed it without mercy. The husband pitifully died the next day from the pain inflicted. The strange incident took place in Kampong Leu village, Kbal Trach commune, Krakor district, Pursat province on 30 December 2008. Vuth Voeun was the 38-year-old victim, and Sy Voeun, his 38-year-old wife live in the village above.
According to information provided by the Kbal Trach police station, this domestic violence started with 15-liter of rice alcohol bought by the wife to sell at home. However, the husband invited over several of his friends and they drank all the wine while the wife was harvesting rice in the field. The police officer indicated the family house also sells wine and some spices for their survival.
On the day of the incident, the wife bought 15-liter of rice wine to sell to the villagers before they travel to their harvesting work or when they return home from a day of harvesting. On the same day, Voeun, the wife, went to harvest rice the entire day also. In the evening, when she returned home, she saw her husband and several of his friends drinking all the wine she bought for sale, she got mad and a dispute ensued with her husband. The police officers indicated that when his wife gave him a fit, the husband got angry and he rushed to pull her hair to beat her and intended to break her neck. At that moment, the wife started grabbing on to his penis, squeezed and bit it without mercy until the husband was so hurt and fell down, but he did not dare tell any neighbors about this incident and he did not go the hospital either. In the morning, the husband was found dead with his hand pitifully groping over his groin. The wife was arrested by the police and brought in to the station for questioning.
The latest report indicated that on 16 December, the couple above also had a dispute and the wife already bit her husband penis once already, but the incident was not fatal to him. However, on the second round of the fight, the biting and squeezing were more severe than the first time, and this led to his death.
