Jealous man kills ex-wife’s new husband | Thaiger

CHERNG TALAY: A jealous ex-husband allegedly stabbed his former wife’s new husband to death just before dawn on January 5, then fled the scene with the woman.

Cherng Talay Police Duty Inspector Pol Lt Col Jessada Sangsuree identified the victim as Rungnapa Sriburam, 31, a native of Kalasin province who was staying on Soi Layan in Cherng Talay Village 6 at the time of his death.

The victim’s blood-covered body, dressed in a white vest and black shorts, was found at about 5:30 am, lying face-up in his quarters at the Wasi Construction Company temporary workers’ camp.

There was a stab wound to the base of his left ear, two more to the left side of his chest, and multiple wounds to his left arm. His belongings were scattered around the room, suggesting a violent struggle, Lt Col Jessada said.

The victim and his wife, identified only as “Noy”, had been married in a ceremony held on New Year’s Day.

According to witnesses, the murder was carried out by Noy’s estranged husband. Police are now investigating to try and learn his name and current whereabouts, Lt Col Jessada said.

“Witnesses said they heard loud noises consistent with a fight, then saw Noy leaving with her ex-husband. When they went to check on Rungnapa, they found him dead and reported the murder to the police,” he said.

“We believe that the man abducted his wife after killing her new husband,” he added.
