Lt Col Sommit Buamat, an investigator at Talat Yai Police Station in Takua Pa district, was shot in the chest, abdomen, a leg and a hand by his wife, Orawan, 32, with a 9mm pistol, said Lt Col Sarawut Soongsanga, a Takua Pa police investigator.

Orawan, who is nine-months pregnant and is due to give birth in a few days, waited for police with the gun at their house in tambon Bang Nai Si in Takua Pa district after the shooting.

She was taken to the police station for questioning. She said she had a heated argument with her husband over family problems, including debts they had incurred for family expenses.

According to her statement, Lt Col Sommit opened fire at her with the 9mm pistol, but the shot missed. She fought back and during a scuffle, her husband plunged from a bedroom window, dropping the gun on the bed. She picked up the gun and opened fire at him while he was lying below, killing him in front of their house.

Police recovered eight spent bullet cases from the room.

Lt Col Sarawut said police investigators did not believe her statement.

The woman was initially charged with premeditated murder and detained at the Takua Pa Police Station, pending further investigation.

Yeah...the story sounds a bit fishy, but knowing the reputation of the police, who is to say that that is what her story really was? I guess just the polices' word...which we all know would never be dishonest in an effort to clear their police brethren. Pardon my cynicism, but I got this way from seeing nothing but dishonesty and corruption from the police. Whatever the case, it is a sad mess....
