A 23-year-old man is cooling his heels behind bars after he was arrested for killing his father.
According to reports, the said man, Leng Huon, murdered his 50-year-old father for stepping on his iPhone.
The evil act was carried out after a night of drinking and playing loud music with friends at the family home.
Leng Huon reportedly dropped his iPhone on the ground just and his father who had come out due over his inability to sleep due to the noise from the party, mistakenly stepped on the phone, resulting in an argument which saw the father kicking his son in the back.
Local police Captain Chuon Samnang said “the son was angry with the father for stepping on his phone and breaking it and also for kicking him,” he said. “He then took the axe and hacked his father on the head, neck and chest, instantly killing him”.
Leng Huon reportedly fled from the house after he murdered his father, but was arrested by commune police at about 3 am on Saturday.
