Younger brother blames epilepsy for murderous attack on sibling over 100 baht in Chonburi
Muang district police in Chonburi have announced the arrest of a 38 year old man after the murder of his elder brother in Bang Sai Soi 105 earlier this month.
Thammarat or “Both” has been charged with the murder of Suphamit Roowong, 40, and having a knife concealed on his person. A warrant had earlier been issued and he was apprehended when he returned home.
Suphamit was attacked multiple times suffering head, face and body wounds on September 4th. He died from his injuries on the way to hospital.
Thammarat said he suffers from epilepsy and could hardly remember a thing.
He only remembered that they had argued over 100 owed for house rent and that his elder sibling went for him first with a knife.
He then attacked his brother with a knife but it is all a blur as he suffers from seizures.
He has been detained.
