A Burmese national killed another Myanmar man saying that he “was angry that his father was slapped on the face” yesterday (June 10).
Police and rescue workers arrived at the scene to find the body of a 37 year old La, a Burmese national lying face up on the ground. Stab wounds were found around his neck, chest and body. He was covered in blood. His body was taken to Vachira Hospital.
Nearby they found 34 year old Chit Thein, a Burmese national, was waiting for police at the scene. Scratch wounds were found on his right leg. Police seized a 12 inch bayonet/knife tool.
Chit Thein told police that Mr La was arguing with his father about an annoying sound from his house where the roof was being fixed and praying chants were playing inside. Mr La was arguing with Mr Jao, who is Chit Thien ‘s father. Mr La slabbed Mr Jao’s face. Chit Thien was angry and then used the 12 inch tool to stab Mr La many times.
Chit Thien was taken to the Phuket City Police Station where he was charged with murder by inflicting injury upon another person.
