Man killed by lover in drunken ‘accident’



Man killed by lover in drunken ‘accident’ | Thaiger

RASSADA: Banya Wosongkram, 20, a young laborer from Khon Kaen, died after being stabbed by his lover during a drinking session at a worker’s camp near the bridge to Koh Sireh on January 31.

The incident occurred while K. Banya was drinking with two friends and his lover Siam Raisanguan, 32, a married woman from Kalasin province.

Lt Col Ampolwat Saengreuang, Inspector at Phuket City Police Station, said, “Banya was sitting drinking with two friends, then he called the woman to come over, saying that he didn’t have any money for dinner.

“[When the stabbing happened] the group had already drunk two bottles of lao khao [rice whiskey] and were on their third. They were joking around about cheating and the man said ‘if I’ve cheated on you then you can kill me’.

“Siam then grabbed a fruit knife lying nearby and jabbed at K. Banya with the 8½-inch blade. The knife went into his chest,” Col Ampolwat said.

“The woman then pulled out the knife, causing the cut to bleed profusely, and screamed ‘Don’t die! Don’t die! I was only joking!’. His friends took him to hospital, but he died on the way,” he explained.

When police arrived at the scene, Siam was still standing outside with blood on her hands. She did not know that K. Banya had died, he added.

Despite claiming that the stabbing was an accident, Siam was charged with murder, Col Ampolwat said.
