Lawyer Nopadol Seedatan, representing the victim’s family, said Preeyanuch Nonwangchai, 24, Kawita Ratchada, 25, Apiwan Sattayabundit, 28, and Wasin Namprom, 22, had denied the serious charge of premeditated murder.

He said Preeyanuch and Kawita admitted to assaulting Warisara Klinjui, 22, and burying her dismembered body. Apiwan admitted to concealing a body and drug abuse. Wasin pleaded guilty to concealing a body.

The offence of premeditated murder carries a possible death penalty, and concealing a body a maximum jail term of one year and/or a fine of B20,000.

Preeyanuch was earlier reported to have confessed to police that she wanted to teach Ms Warisara a lesson because she had provided police with information that led to the arrest of Preeyanuch’s husband in a drug abuse case.

The victim was strangled to death in a rented car in Khon Kaen on May 23, her body dismembered and then buried in Khao Suan Kwang district of the northeastern province.

Public prosecutors arraigned the four on charges of premeditated murder, concealing a body, unlawful detention, theft and possessing a weapon in a public place. During police interrogation, the four reportedly confessed to all charges, including premeditated murder.

Another defendant Jidarat Promkhun, 21, was charged only with theft. It is alleged the four other suspects met her in Bangkok after the murder in Khon Kaen and sold her the victim’s mobile phone.

Jidarat denied the charge.

Lawyer Nopadol also said that Pichapa Khampoengjai, the dead woman’s mother, is demanding the defendants pay B10 million in compensation. The Khon Kaen court scheduled the trial to begin on Sept 19.
