Another two charges levelled against Chaichana Sirichart are illegal detention and broadcasting pictures that would cause distress to another person, said deputy police chief Wirachai Songmetta, adding that Chaichana had tested positive for methamphetamine (ya bah) use.

The attack occurred in a room at an apartment building in Bung Kum district. The assault was broadcast live on Facebook for 11 minutes, and seen by several viewers, who later reported it to police.

Police earlier pressed a charge of causing injury against the 26-year-old man but changed it to attempted murder after seeing the footage and assessing the injuries to Kuldara Yeesaman, 21, said Gen Wirachai, who visited the victim at Nopparatrajathanee Hospital yesterday (Apr 23).

Attempted murder is punishable by 15 years to life in prison, or the death penalty in some circumstances, according to Section 288 of the Criminal Code.

Gen Wirachai said the suspect gave a confusing statement in which he accused his girlfriend of cheating on him.

Chaichana is an administrator of the Global Fx Investment Facebook Page where he taught foreign currency trading. Asked about rumours that Ms Kuldara had secretly transferred B40 million worth of stocks out of his account, Gen Wirachai said Chaichana and his girlfriend would be questioned about this matter.

Chaichana told reporters that he was sorry for hurting his girlfriend and claimed that he had an argument with her over six million baht gained from the course’s fees, but did not elaborate further.

Ms Kuldara had a broken nose, cuts to her throat and burns on her body assumed to be from a hot iron. Police also found a knife and iron, both covered with blood, and a broomstick broken in two, in the couple’s room.

Doctors estimated she may have been tortured for up to 10 hours.

Ms Kuldara told police inspectors that she had been beaten by Chaichana six times during their eight-month relationship. She told police that Chaichana appeared to suffer from delusions, such as believing he was “The Joker” from the Batman movies, during the times when he beat her.

In addition to the initial round of charges, Chaichana may also face legal action from people who paid B15,000 to join his currency trading course but never received any training, according to a police source.

Chaichana was previously charged with property damage in 2005.

At the time of the offence the offender was under the influence of drugs, so in law he cannot be mentally retarded. If as alleged she was assaulted 6 times, one questions why reports were not made after each assault. Perhaps she enjoyed the beatings or consented to them, or the money was enough for her to stay.

A real mentally retarded dangerous fraudulous loser.
Society should be protected against him for the rest of his natural life.
Lady was beaten 6x in 8 months.  Love was blind indeed.
