RASSADA: A 28-year-old gardener was allegedly stabbed to death by his brother-in-law during a drunken fight between the two at about 10:30 on Sunday night.
Pol Maj Parichat Jaturonphan of the Phuket City Police said witnesses told him that a fight broke out between the two men while they were drinking with friends in front of the home they shared in Soi Panfa, in Baan Kuku.
Maj Parichat identified the victim as Weeraphan Phorukha, a freelance gardener, and said he was stabbed in the chest during the fight by his 17-year-old brother-in-law, whose name was withheld because he is a minor.
Weeraphan was rushed to Vachira Phuket Hospital, where he died of blood loss. The 17-year-old, arrested at the scene, is expected to be charged with murder.
