After getting into an argument in front of a police station this morning, a man stabbed his common-law wife to death. The crime took place at about 9:30 am this morning in front of Cha-uat Police Station in Nakhon Si Thammarat in the south of Thailand.

After an argument that became more and more heated in front of the police station, with the couple shouting abuse at each other, the man eventually became so enraged that he pulled out a pointed sharp knife and stabbed the woman 8 times in the chest and neck.

He fled the scene after the crime but police quickly found him and took him into custody. The details of his identity were not released.

The Thai woman was 48 years old I had previously been widowed. She had been living with the man who stabbed her as a common-law husband and wife.

After the man stabbed her in front of the police station and fled the scene of the crime, the poor woman was left where she fell laying on the ground in front of the police station.

The Cha-uat District Police Chief confirmed the incident that happened this morning. An investigation is ongoing and it has not been revealed whether the man offered any explanation or any motive behind the crime.
