Police confirm that a man accused of killing his 21 year old girlfriend is currently undergoing hospital treatment after trying to take his own life but will soon be brought to court to face charges.

Krissanachok “Ole Wanjeab” Chaichana, aged 30, attempted suicide after killing his girlfriend during an argument.

He was arrested in the victim’s car, while drinking toilet cleaning chemicals and attempting to slit his wrists. Since then, he has been under 24-hour police watch at Kasemrat Hospital in Bangkok, where his condition is reported to be stable.

Police Colonel Wutthichai Thaiwat confirms the court has granted an arrest warrant on a charge of deadly assault.

It’s understood police are waiting for a medical update to confirm when the suspect can be brought to court and officers remain stationed outside his room to prevent him absconding or attempting suicide again.

The case received widespread publicity after the victim’s brother took to social media to describe the fatal attack on his sister, appealing for help in tracking down her boyfriend who had dropped her at the Bang Mod Rama II hospital before fleeing.

PM Prayut Chan-o-cha has asked the independent panel examining the dismissal of charges relating to the 2012 hit-and-run case against Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya if it can be re-opened. Prosecutors abruptly decided not to arraign Boss on a charge of “reckless driving causing death” after the other charges relating to the incident had lapsed due to the statute of limitations. “I’ve asked them to study if I can order a re-investigation into the case. We’re in the stage of establishing facts about the justice process.” There has been a public outcry over the handling of the Boss case that has dragged […]

Buying beef online? Is it real beef or faux beef? Almost all of the samples of ‘beef” ordered online, or taken as samples from schools in Bangkok and Prachinburi province, were found to be fake. The Halal Science Centre at Chulalongkorn University did the checks and was astonished to find that much of the beef bought online was actually cheaper cuts of pork. The pork can be marinated in ox blood to take on the appearance of beef. Harmful bacteria was also detected in portions of the samples checked by the University team. The actual percentage of the beef checked that […]
