Groom allegedly killed the bride 5 days before wedding
An electrician working for the government allegedly told police that he murdered his fiancée less than a week before their wedding.
Ronnachai Panchart, 26, admitted, after being interrogated for several hours, to killing government dental official Nontiya Krowjatturat, 25, early Tuesday morning in Tha Sae district of Chumphon province. Ronnachai and Nontiya were supposed to be married this Sunday in Nontiya’s hometown in the province’s Sawi district. Though police are still trying to pull details from the alleged killer, it seems that infidelity was at the core of the crime, but it wasn’t the deceased that did the cheating.
Police investigators believe that Ronnachai was seeing another woman behind his fiancée‘s back and that he was caught with this mystery woman when Ronnachai turned up at her finacee’s house and found them there together. They had a fight, which was also confirmed by Nontiya’s father, who did not go into detail about what the fight was about. Nonthiya was fatally shot at about 1am on Tuesday, and her body discovered by her hospital co-workers, who grew concerned when she did not show up for work on Wednesday and visited her housing, on the hospital grounds.
They saw blood, broke the lock, and called the police. Though the hospital compound has security cameras, the one near her room had been tampered with so that it was facing a different direction. Nearby cameras show a man in a face mask enter the compound at 1am and leave 20 minutes later. Upon searching Ronnachai’s house, police found clothing that matched what the man was wearing in the surveillance video. They are also trying to determine if a woman may have also assisted in the crime. No charges have yet been made. Source: Coconuts Bangkok
