Khu Khot police in Lam Lukka, Pathum Thani were called after a shooting early yesterday morning in front of a shop selling plastic goods.

 

Dead at the scene was 40 year old Supornchai who had been shot four times in the abdomen, ribs and chest by a 9mm gun, reported Sanook.

 

The shooter was his girlfriend Tharinya, also 40. A CZ gun was taken into evidence.

 

Noi, 27, a Laotian worker at the shop said that her boss had just made merit and was walking back in the store when a woman whom she recognised as a night cashier arrived and started shooting.

 

She said "don't shoot" but the assailant continued to fire into his body.

Tharinya said she had been together with the deceased for 4 years, they had no children and had not registered a marriage.

 

They had frequent arguments and she claimed he often beat her and grabbed her throat. Stress built up over time until he ordered her out of the house.

 

She went to live elsewhere and the bitter disputes continued over the phone until he dared her to come and get him.

 

She said she bought the weapon on the internet and intended to shoot herself too before the store employee grabbed the gun from her and stopped her.

 

Pol Capt Ek-Amorn Seesan is taking witness statements and studying CCTV to wrap up the case.

Buying a gun, travelling to find a person and then shooting them dead , is NOT self defence .

   Seems like she murdered him , this isn't a case of self defence, its murder 

Sure, it is. You are 100 % right. However, one might think that it was a justified one, if the things she are saying is true.

He beats her up regularly, then dares her to do something about it. She does. He gets what he deserves. She gets off, or lightly. Her defense? She was seriously abused over time, and provoked. You don't bash up women and walk. End of.

Never understood this line of thinking.

If somebody beat me up, I'd report them to the police and never see them again. Lots of posters on this forum appear to hate other men.

Are you suggesting that murder can be justified?

That's what she said and a fool would believe without even a modicum of evidence.

Desperate why ?---- They had parted, she was living somewhere else -And according to the person you quote phoning him with threats .

It was only a 4 year relationship, no children involved---& she was just 27 -hardly wasted her life with him.

 

How many people on here do you think had a half their lifetime relationship and lost so much through it.

 

 

IF he beat her...then he is less then a person... but even that isn't the death penalty anywhere. 

Ok, so she gets beaten up regularly and then thrown out of the house. How would you feel? Who knows what contribution she made to the upkeep, or why she was the one who had to leave. We don't know how things panned out over the ensuing months.

New York Subways and woman wearing skimpy  clothes are besides the point .

That is not the thread topic or subject .

   If this woman had been a victim of domestic abuse , lets just say she was , that doesn't give her the right to go and buy a gun and kill the guy .

   They were not even living together at the time, so there was no reason for her to see him again .

  Another possibility is that he finished the relationship  with her , told her to leave his apartment and she went and got a gun and murdered him .

   The "domestic abuse" and "Was going to kill myself" may be her trying to get off murder charges 

What motive could she have had then? All of a sudden it's the guy who's the victim of an unwarranted attack.

What I find odd in this case is that the guy had previously ordered the woman to leave his house which she did and was living elsewhere.   It seems the norm that males threaten females if they leave them, not if they stay.   Maybe there was another reason she went after him having been ditched.

Two things to take from this:

 

1. Don't make enemies (especially here).

 

2. Guns here are readily available on the internet.

"she gets beaten up regularly and then thrown out of the house."--- She says--He says, but he doesn't because she's murdered him now so I guess she can say anything.

"Who knows what contribution she made to the upkeep"-- Whatever contribution she made to help run the plastic bucket shop would you think it entitles her to murder him.?

"why she was the one who had to leave"--- Because he owned the business (on Thai News started had it before he met her) I know where you and I come from we would probably have to leave--live in a bedsit until the court said we were allowed back into our own business--but stupid Thai laws aren't the same.

 

Would you be this upset if it was the other way around......  and he had murdered her?...or would you be calling for max sentence for him.

There are many people on planet earth who don't deserve to be, and many of them deserve to have their lives ended with some pain.

Many women (and men) suffer abuse at the hands of others, and in SOME cases I would justify this kind pf payback. However, if society starts to get on this lady's side, then where do we draw the line? We all know that there are plenty of crazy women here who feel hard done by for the silliest little things. Where does one draw the line in what deserves payback or not?

None of us were there when the alleged abuse took place, and I'd bet none of us were there when this shooting happened. So the best we can do is speculate.

Even if what she said is true.... she condemned herself with her own words.

 

She wasn't even living with him, so there could have been no violence on his part. She admitted that he requested her to leave his house. If he was abusing her; she would be the one to want to leave.

The likelihood is that she was the aggressor, hence she being the one that went to his place to attack him.

Try to not just jump on any bandwagon that comes along. Use your critical brain at least sometimes.

The likelihood is WHAT?

The trial may bring up some witnesses to her abuse, or not. No one should guess at this stage as she can say what she likes to defend herself.
