Khun Sao murder suspect still at large

KATHU: The suspected accomplice in the stabbing murder of 40-year old Nongyin “Sao” Sengton is still at large.

Khun Sao was murdered in her home near the Tung Tong Market on November 27 last year. She was a long-term companion of property owner Tavorn Kajkla, also known as Pae Lian.

She was found with 15 deep stab wounds, and her gold necklace and bracelet were missing.

On January 16, police arrested 17-year-old suspect “Aek” from Phang Nga.

However, his alleged accomplice, 24-year-old “Yod” from Nakhon Sri Thammarat, has yet to be apprehended.

Tung Tong Police Duty Inspector Pol Lt Col Passakorn Sonthikul told the Gazette that police are still looking for “Yod” while “Aek” remains detained at the Phuket Juvenile Observation and Protection Center.

Col Passakorn added that charges will be filed against “Aek” in Juvenile Court after police get his biographical report from the center.

“We are just waiting for the report about the boy’s history and his behavior from the Phuket Juvenile Observation and Protection Center. That information will be included with the evidence from the case and we will then file the case in Juvenile Court,” he said.
