Unemployed Man in Sri Racha Kills Friend with Potted Plant After Argument

Sri Racha —

A Thai man brutally murdered his friend who allowed him to live in the house rent-free during his recent unemployment period.

The incident occurred at 6 AM on Thursday, May 9th, on Soi Lung Nuea, Sri Racha district, Chonburi province.

The victim, 35-year-old Mr. Kritsada Nuchprem, a street food vendor, was found lying on the road with severe facial injuries. He was rushed to Laem Chabang Hospital but later succumbed to his wounds.

The suspect, 39-year-old Mr. Kamron Songkasri, was apprehended at the scene. He was alleged to have used a beer bottle and a potted plant to kill the victim.

Witnesses, Ms. Mukthada Upchit, 19, and Ms. Supitcha Sripuengjan, 18, told local reporters that they had witnessed the victim and the suspect arguing in an alleyway prior to the incident. The altercation escalated into physical violence when both men reached the middle of the alleyway, and the suspect reportedly stabbed the victim with a broken beer bottle and subsequently smashed his face with a potted plant.

According to Mr. Konchanat Kaewrungruang, 36, a friend of the suspect, the suspect had been unemployed for some time and was staying at the victim’s house. The argument reportedly stemmed from the victim telling the suspect to find a job.

Laem Chabang police are detaining the suspect for legal proceedings.
