Wanna was arrested in Nakhon Si Thammarat on Saturday and transferred to Wichit Police Station in Phuket yesterday (January 27) to reenact the crime.
Wanna has admitted the murder. He said he became angry when Mr Supakit walked into him and didn’t apologise, so Wana shot him in the neck.
Wanna also had a warrant for his arrest relating to gun charges in 2009 – one for having a gun in a public place, and another for shooting a gun in a public place.
He remains in police custody.
