Man hits wife, gets stabbed

PHUKET: Kathu Police found the body of a man stabbed to death in a sand lot on Saturday afternoon.

Nares Komkam, 42, was a truck driver at Phuket Sirintorn Co Ltd who had reportedly argued with his wife that morning.

“We found the body on the ground, wearing a black shirt and jeans,” said Kathu Police Capt Nipon Bumroongtin. “He had been stabbed in the left side of his chest. Rescue workers took the body to Vachira Hospital for a forensic examination.”

Police say their investigations reveal that a jealous Mr Nares, believing his wife to be having an affair, reportedly struck her hard enough to cause bleeding after she asked to visit her mother in the hospital.
