The Phetchaburi Provincial Court today sentenced a former senior police doctor and his son to death and another son to life imprisonment after finding them guilty of a murder conspiracy of one of their Myanmar employees.
The death sentence was handed down on the former police doctor Pol Col Supat Laohawatana in absentia, and his son Ake.
His two sons, Ake and Akara, appeared in the court room to hear the court’s ruling in the murder case in which their father Pol Col Supat was accused by two of his former Myanmar employees, identified as Kala and Yong, of killing a Myanmar worker identified as Itar, and had his body buried in his orchard range in Tha Yarng district of Phetburi province.
With the substantial evidence obtained after the skeleton of the Myanmar workers was exhumed from the burial in the orchard, and the testimonies of his two former workers, the court sentenced Pol Col Supat and his son Ake to death.
However as another son Akara was an underaged youth at the time of the murder, the court commuted his life sentence to 25 years and three months in prison instead.
After the verdict was read this morning, both sons were seeking bails from the court and would appeal the ruling.
Pol Col Supat is still at large.
Pol Col Supat was also accused of murdering a Thai couple Samart Noomjui and Orasa Kerdsap, who had been missing since 2009.
Earlier Pol Col Supat’s former Myanmar employees have accused him of killing two Myanmar workers at his 40-rai pineapple orchard in Phetchaburi’s Tha Yang district.
Three skeletons dug up by police at Pol Col Supat’s orchard were examined at Central Institute of Forensic Science and two were identified as males.
The gender of the third skeleton was not known.
Two of the skeletons showed signs of having been shot.Facebook.
