She then turned around and shot him once on the right side of his chest.” The Sgt Maj was rushed to hospital but died on the way. Lt Seksan said K. Tim told officers that the couple had a long history of personal problems. She was charged with murder and is being held at Tah Chat Chai Police Station.
