The victim’s older sister Yindee Ruabrat, 46, said that her sister was murdered by her own husband.

Yindee claimed that her sister’s husband visited her while she was cooking to try to settle a personal dispute. However, Wanrat refused to reconcile, which allegedly enraged her husband and fueled him to murder his own wife with an axe.

The suspect fled on a motorbike and was still on the run, the Sri Racha police chief said. However, the officer pledged that he would arrest the suspect soon as it was a serious crime.
