Baby killers out on bail

Legacy Phuket Gazette

PHUKET CITY: Two youths arrested for the grisly murder of a two-year-old girl and her nanny during a botched robbery attempt in Rassada on June 22 are back on the streets after having been bailed out of jail by relatives, the Gazette has learned.

The two teenagers, a 15-year-old student at Phuket Technical College (PTC) and his 17-year-old friend, confessed to slicing the throats of nanny Dang Panthip, 40, and two-year-old Nitchanart Phueng-rang, daughter of PTC teacher Narisorn Phueng-rang.

The child began to cry when the two youths entered K. Narisorn’s home in Baan Kabout, Rassada, at about 5 pm with the intent to rob. To silence her and K. Dang, the two youths sliced the throats of both before fleeing.

They were arrested just a few hours later at Saphan Hin.

Phuket City Police Investigations Inspector Lt Col Somkid Boonrat on September 15 confirmed that the two youths had been released on bail.

The 17-year-old was employed delivering cooking-gas canisters at the time of the murder, he said.

Police are still collecting evidence to prosecute the pair for premeditated murder, charges to which they have already confessed, added Col Somkid.

“I think we will clear this case soon,” he said.
