Man murders pregnant girlfriend | Thaiger

PHUKET CITY: An enraged man slashed the throat of his pregnant girlfriend as she was working at a 7-Eleven store in Phuket City at 3:45 am on January 7. He was arrested by police the same day as he was preparing to leave the island.

Phuket City Police Superintendent Col Nos Svettalekha identified the victim as 26-year-old Vipaporn Yimaim, a native of Chainat.

As she was working at the 7-Eleven branch on Srisuthat Rd in tambon Talad Yai, Phuket City, her throat was slashed by a man wielding a 10-inch knife.

Col Nos identified the killer as 29-year-old Nuchan Munmeema, a native of the northeast province of Sakon Nakhon and the victim’s estranged lover.

Nuchan fled the scene but was caught by police at 8 pm the same day as he was waiting for a bus at Phuket Municipal Bus Station.

“He planned to go to Surat Thani so he could catch a train to Bangkok and get to his home in Sakon Nakhon,” Col Nos said.

“Nuchan was angry with Vipaporn because she had wanted to end her relationship with him. He is charged with murder and he is now in Phuket Provincial Prison. No one has yet shown up to post bail for him,” said Col Nos.

“Vipaporn was two months pregnant. Her body is now at Vachira Phuket Hospital,” he added.
