Burmese woman found beaten to death

THALANG: A 27-year-old Burmese woman identified only as “Ya” was found beaten to death on January 28 near an abandoned tin mine in Baan Prujampa, Tambon Thepkrasattri.

From the condition of her body, investigators believe that she had died about three days earlier.

Pol Lt Col Jamroon Plaiduang, Inspector at Thalang Police Station, said that officers visited the house nearby where Ya lived with her husband, Yusub, also from Burma. There they found bloodstains inside the house and blood spots as far as 300 meters away.

Yusub, 40, who has been in Phuket for five years and makes a living selling roti, was arrested on charges of murder, which he denied.
