A rag and bone man took his dead wife in his cart to be cremated at the local temple.
But temple undertakers smelt a rat and called in the police, report Tnamcot.
The bizarre scene played out at a Pathum Thani temple after Klong 1 police had been called. The man, who with his wife collected old things to sell, had brought her dead body in to prepare for cremation saying he had little money.
Police interviewed the man, unnamed but known to be 41 from Bung Karn province, who said that he had argued with his wife when they were drinking on Tuesday evening. He said he hit her two or three times with a torch.
They went to sleep but he woke at 2am realising his wife was dead. On Wednesday morning he wrapped her in a cloth and put her in his cart before pulling her to the temple on his motorbike.
Police went with the man to his house to continue investigations while the body was sent for autopsy.
