A Thai man who beat his girlfriend in a jealous rage is thought to be a wanted murderer from another case.

bar-bell-murder-thailandOfficials from the Paweena Foundation for abused women and children were called in by the younger sister of a woman referred to as “Nok”, 30.

She had met a man in Bangkok four years ago and they lived together.

He was usually kind to her but when he had a drink his personality changed.

He would beat her but because she loved him he was never reported to police.

But last week the husband, named as Sakchart Kertkaew, 30, escalated the violence. Following an altercation in a Ram Intra restaurant he attacked Nok with a barbell at their home knocking her unconscious, reported Manager Online.

Fortunately a security guard found her and took her to hospital where she is recovering.

Now after investigations by Paweena Hongsakul, the president of the foundation that bears her name, and Bangkok police it has been discovered that Sakchart is wanted for a 2009 murder in Lopburi.

There is a long standing warrant out for his arrest.

Police said he had fled the couple’s condo in Ram Intra and they were trying to track him down.

He had no job and was apparently living on handouts sent from his mother who was working abroad in the Netherlands.
