A 33 year old man was arrested after he allegedly set a house on fire because his wife didn’t want to have sex with him.

Narongchan Paksarom allegedly drove his motorcycle to a house in the Isaan province Buriram where his wife was living and approached the home wearing nothing but a towel, according to his wife Ratchaneekorn Yeeram. She told police her husband’s words scared her and she quickly left her home, taking her children, ages 4 and 9, with her.

Narongchan then allegedly set the home on fire. Reports don’t go into detail about how the fire was started, or how much damage was done to the home, but photos show the fire engulfing the entire home. Neighbours say the alleged arsonist also threatened them with a knife.

Police say that Narongchan admitted to starting the fire and said he was angry because his wife didn’t want to have sex with him. Ratchaeekorn says she believes her husband’s actions were because he was high on drugs. Police tested the man’s urine and it came out positive for narcotics.

    Clearly he got mental issues and there is almost no support for them. Especially when they get addicted to drugs like alcohol. Anyway enjoy paying for him in prison and keep fighting the narco war.

    I don’t think sex is why. Might factor in but there are underlying mental and emotional issues.
