Chanta Utthanaphon was speaking about the fate of her son, Pol Col Thitisan “Joe Ferrari” Utthanaphon, who was head of Nakhon Sawan police station when charged last year with murdering Chiraphong Thanapat, a 24-year-old drug suspect.

He was tried for killing the suspect by putting a plastic bag over his head, suffocating him, reports the Bangkok Post.

The Central Criminal Court for Corruption and Misconduct initially gave him the death penalty on June 8 but commuted the sentence to life because he confessed to some charges.

Mrs Chanta said her son regrets his wrongdoing and was sorry for having abused his authority.

She said Pol Col Thitisan and his family are willing to follow the court’s verdict.

Pol Col Thitisan’s sister added the family will pay compensation as demanded by the victim’s relatives.

He doesn't deserve mercy- he showed none to his victim.
