A star of the hit TV show The Voice has been shot dead by her estranged husband in what police are ruling a 'murder-suicide.'
San Sreylai, 23, was gunned down and killed at a beauty clinic in an upscale neighbourhood in Cambodian capital Phnom Penh.
Police have confirmed the gunman is believed to be her ex-husband, Chey Rin, 53.
It is alleged that Rin shot Sreylai and then shot himself.
Phnom Penh Deputy Police Chief Song Ly declined to give any further details about the incident, saying only that an investigation is ongoing.
