Amoury Rigaud, 34, – apprehended in the jungle in Tak on Sunday – has blamed his wife Rujira Iam-lamai, 38 who he said did it with a former Thai lover.

imageHe just helped her escape. She is still on the run.

Police think otherwise – Daily News reported that they are in possession of a wealth of evidence and have charged him with premeditated murder, mutilation of a corpse and its moving and concealment.

Rigaud – speaking in English and French through an interpreter – was interrogated through the night.

He was arrested staying in a tent next to the recently resprayed Yaris that the couple used to flee the Bung Na Rong area.

A week earlier the charred remains of 61 year old Guiseppe de Stafani were found among burnt tires near a reservoir.

The hunt for Rujira continues.

The arrest of the French man was made after information from villagers in the Wang Jao area of Tak in Western Thailand was given to police.
