Neighbors told police that Mr Boonsri and his wife, Nucharee Pratheep Na Thalang, often fought.

“We were told that his wife could not cope with him [Mr Boonsri] becoming insanely jealous over small things,” the officer said.

Some reports detailed that previous arguments between the two had turned violent.

“Apparently, Mr Boonsri was prone to hitting his wife when he was drunk and angry. He reportedly had beaten his wife several times, sometimes quite severely,” the officer said.

“We believe Mrs Nucharee fled after stabbing her husband. We are searching for her, and believe she is staying somewhere in the area,” the officer added.
