The Phichit Court on Wednesday approved arrest warrants for a Thai woman and her French boyfriend sought in connection with the alleged murder of the woman’s Italian ex-husband in Bung Narang district.
The court issued the arrest warrants for Thai woman Rujira Eiumlamai, 38, and her French boyfriend Rigaux Amaury, 34, for murder and destroying the body to conceal the cause of death, Thawatchai said. Police also had information that the two were hiding in Tak province, based on CCTV footage, and should arrest them soon, said Thawatchai.
Earlier on Wednesday, Thawatchai had told reporters that Bt10,000 was recently withdrawn from the deceased man’s bank account via another bank’s ATM. That combined with the fact that Amaury, who has been blacklisted from entering Thailand, cannot leave the country through immigration checkpoints without raising a red flag, has convinced police the couple were still in Thailand and lying low.
Police suspect that three other people in the area might have been involved in the alleged killing or could have assisted the couple, Thawatchai said.
Rujira and Amaury allegedly absconded after body parts, partially burned in a bonfire of rubber tyres, were found in a wooded area near Bung Thab Chan Pond in Tambon Laemran last Friday. These were later confirmed to belong to Rujira’s ex-husband, Giuseppe de Stefani, 61.
Thawatchai said police had interviewed 10 witnesses and obtained information that the tyres used to burn de Stefani’s body might have been from the French man’s rented house in Pho Prathab Chang district. They had also learned that a five-litre gasoline container was missing from Rujira’s house in Bung Narang.Facebook.
