A Trang murder suspect has been arrested in Satun yesterday, just 24 hours before the statute of limitations on the 20 year old murder case was due to expire.

41 year old Kredis Sombatthong, a resident of Trang’s Yan Ta Khao district, was arrested by Crime Suppression Division police in Satun’s Khun Ka Long district this morning (Thursday) under a warrant issued by the Betong Court on January 15, 2003.

He was accused of murdering Thaweep Nookong in July 1998 following a dispute. Thaweep accused Kredis of molesting his girlfriend and Thaweep allegedly stabbed him during the quarrel in Yala’s Betong district.
