Phuket hotel staffer arrested on murder charges

PHUKET: A hotel employee at Banthai Beach Resort & Spa in Patong was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly taking part in a gang attack that led to a death in Phitsanulok five years ago.

Danai Thonglaima, 35, is alleged to have joined in a roadside attack in May 2008, after which he fled to Phuket and lived a secret life.

Officers from Phitsanulok joined with Patong Police to make the arrest at the hotel where Mr Danai worked, said Patong Police Superintendent Chiraphat Pochanaphan.

Mr Danai will be returned to Phitsanulok to stand trial, he said.
