"Mystery death" in Ratchaburi partially explained: Husband charged


Recommended Posts

Siam Rath followed up on the death of a woman outside her house in the Chom Bung police jurisdiction of Ratchaburi, central Thailand.


They had called it a mystery death; ASEAN NOW carried the story on Thursday.


Thitiya, 41, had been found slumped in a Toyota Vios. Her husband Uthen, 55, initially claimed they had been drinking and that he was innocent. 


He kept changing his story as police asked him to explain bloodstains at the house, broken bottles and cuts on his body.


Now he has admitted that they argued and he claims that he pushed her over and she banged her head on the floor, but he did not intend to kill her. 


He then put her in the car and didn't realise she was dead.


He was taken on a reenactment by the Chom Bung police.


He has been charged with assault causing death.


Whether that will be upgraded to other charges will depend on the results of an autopsy, said station chief Pol Col Tharanit Traiwongsa yesterday.

If that's him in yellow I thought it was a filly?

He's wearing a red shirt...

My mistake, I thought that was the accompanying officer during the re-enactment.
