Retired naval commander gunned down in Ratchaburi as jealous Thai man seeks reconciliation with ex wife

A 72 year old former commander in the navy was shot three times with a 9mm gun outside his house in Ratchaburi yesterday.

His new wife was shot twice in the shoulder and is in hospital.

Muang Ratchaburi police and forensics at the scene in the Ban Huay Moo estate found Commander Chaiyut in a pool of blood.

He had been shot in the forehead, chest and abdomen. Casings and bullets were all around.

Relatives had already ferried a 50 year old woman called Somjit to hospital after she was shot twice in the left shoulder, the bullets exiting through her back.

The hunt is on for Somjit’s estranged husband Dorkrak, 50. He split up with her three years ago and police said that he arrived in a Nissan pick-up with the couple’s two children to attempt a reconciliation.

But an argument broke out leading to the shootings.

He fled in the direction of the Ratchaburi – Suan Pheung Road.

Police said he was jealous of his ex-wife’s new affair.
