Pol Captain Kantapat Yatuam and other officers from Ban Do precinct in Muang district found Pichasan Saengsrichan dead with a gash to the right side of her neck.

Husband Noppadol Saengsrichan, 55, was sobbing next to the body, relatives offering comfort.

Police determined that Pichasan had been holding a large branch for her husband to cut when her shirt became entangled in the blade.

An ambulance crew could do nothing to save her life.

Although neighbours assured police there was no animosity in the marriage and her death was purely an accident, an autopsy was ordered and police were to decide later whether the husband should face any charges.
