CHONBURI – A husband and wife went to Roy Kra Tong Festival for a vacation in Chonburi. They both had too much to drink and fought on the way back to their motel. As they got into bed together they both tried to get the blanket for themselves. The wife was infuriated and found a knife. She stabbed her husband to death. The corpse was found naked. She insisted her husband started it.

Samruam Phuangthong, 51-years-old, was a pick-up bus driver found face flat in a pool of blood. Samruam had been fiercely stabbed with a sharp weapon in his left nipple. The wound was 10 centimeters deep.

The murder weapon was a long kitchen knife. The police also found the victim’s wife, Taweeporn Sriwiman, a 39-years-old masseuse, who at the time of the murder, had blood stained all over her clothes. She had a deep laceration on her right wrist.

According to her, the couple had been together for two years and was out on vacation. They both had a bit too much to drink and started to argue as they returned to their motel room. In bed, they fought over the blanket, causing the wife to stab her husband with a knife. “I don’t think it’s fair to just take the blanket for yourself. There’s seriously something wrong with that guy,” she said.

As for why Sumruam was naked, the wife simply said it was normal for him to not wear anything in bed.
