A police officer who shot and killed a French national Wednesday has been charged and jailed after a court denied his release on bail.
Investigators said former Lumpini police Kantapong Huadsri would be held at the Criminal Court for 12 days pending the outcome into an investigation into charges of murder and weapons-related counts in the death of the 41 year old who was killed inside an office building near BTS Nana yesterday morning.
The 49-year-old former station squad leader has confessed to the crime, police said. He was deemed a flight risk and denied bail. The court said he would not appeal the decision.
The French tourist got into a bar brawl over a woman yesterday with Kantapong, who was reportedly angry that he lost the fight. Kantapong followed and shot the victim dead in front of a Dunkin’ Donuts stall in the Trendy Office and Plaza in Soi Sukhumvit 13.
