The family travelled to Phuket on Sunday (Apr 21) for a holiday and were staying at Smile Residence in Rawai.

Chalong Police were alerted of the incident by hotel staff at approximately 8:30am this morning and arrived to find Squadron Leader Rassdaporn Mongkolrungsab, 39, unconscious in the hotel room. She had bruising around her left eye, chest and mouth.

Rescue workers arrived and took her to Vachira Phuket Hospital where staff tried to save her but she was pronounced dead by 9am.

Police arrested and took the husband, 40-year-old Warrant Officer Nopanan Mongkolrungsab, to Chalong Police Station where he confessed to the crime.

He explained that he became suspicious that his wife was cheating as she was spending a lot of time using the LINE messaging application. As he confronted her about it, an argument broke out and escalated to violence.

The hospital confirmed that she had suffered broken ribs and a ruptured spleen.

Major Prasit Raaon of Chalong Police confirmed that Mr Nopanan was charged with murder and will be tried in a military court.

The children have been taken into care.

I hope the military court has the death penalty, because this cowardly waste of flesh deserves to be beat to death himself.  To brutally beat and murder your spouse in front of their children is a special kind of evil.  Whatever his legal fate, I hope he doesn't make to see the next year.
