A Cambodian court on Monday sentenced a garment factory worker to life in prison for killing another woman in an acid attack motivated by jealous rage over an alleged love affair.
Sroeun Nann was arrested in March after splashing the acid on Meas Vanny, a female security guard.
Meas Vanny, 20, suffered severe burns to her face and body in the attack and died two weeks later at a hospital.
During her trial, Sroeun Nann, 40, confessed to the attack because she was "angry that the woman had a love affair with her husband."
Nou Veasna, presiding judge at Phnom Penh Municipal Court, jailed Sroeun Nann for life for "intentional killing (Meas Vanny) with acid".
