Lt Col Rachan Phanwai of the Phuket City Police was called to the scene, a pavilion beside the pool where the “dancing fountain” show once entertained crowds, at 1:13pm.

On the floor of the pavilion was Theeraphol Wichaidit, 48, with two stab wounds in his chest.

Rescue workers rushed Theeraphol to Vachira Phuket Hospital, however, he was pronounced dead from his injuries at 5pm, Lt Col Rachan explained.

Waiting at the scene was Theerapong Plongkrathok, 60, who explained that he had stabbed Theeraphol with a knife blade that he carries, which he handed over to police.

Lt Col Rachan explained that the two men were drinking together in the pavilion. An argument ensued over Theeraphol handing over Theerapong’s motorbike key.

Theeraphol threw the key into the fountain pool, and proceeded to tell Theerapong that if he wanted it so much he could go fetch it,  Lt Col Rachan said.

Furious, Theerapong lost his temper and stabbed him, he added.

Lt Col Rachan confirmed that Theerapong was taken to Phuket City Police Station and charged with manslaughter.

You are right JohnC.  I think it has to do with the mental capacity of Thai man. No respect for the life of others.Same with those reckless,brainless van driver.Lets not forget about (R)TP,who never cares about them.

What is it about Thai men that they can't control their emotions. Reminds me of another drunk guy who killed his mate over who's turn it was to sing at karaoke. Where is the famous "Nam Jai Thai" we hear so much about?
