Judge sets sentence date for American Marine-killer in Phuket

PHUKET: A judge today set the sentencing date of Lee Aldhouse for the murder of American Marine Dashawn Longfellow (story here).

“The judge set the sentencing date for November 28,” Phuket Provincial Prosecutor Tawan Suknirundorn told the Phuket Gazette.

At the hearing today, Aldhouse signed a copy of Mr Longfellow’s passport, writing that he, Lee Aldhouse, had stabbed “this man”.

After police gave their statements and presented their evidence, the judge asked Aldhouse if there was any last statement he would like to make.

Aldhouse stood up.

“I would like to apologize to his family and friends. I didn’t mean to kill him,” Aldhouse said.

There were no members of the Longfellow family present in the courtroom today.
