Preaw in court, now denies killing karaoke bar girl

KHON KAEN: Preeyanuch “Preaw” Nonwangchai, on trial for the murder and dismemberment of a karaoke bar worker, has changed track in court and denied killing the young woman. She and the four other defendants earlier confessed to the charges, which include premeditated murder.

The five defendants were taken to Khon Kaen Provincial Court today (Feb 21) for the second day of the hearing. Other witnesses included Khao Suan Kwang police chief Col Phakphum Phitsama.

In her testimony the 25-year-old said she only “assaulted” Warisara Klinjui following their severe quarrel, defence counsel Bunyong Kaeofainok said after the hearing.

Three other defendants – Kawita “Earn” Ratchada, 26, Apiwan “Jae” Sattayabundit, 29, and Wasin Namprom, 22 – told the court they only helped cut up the corpse so it could be hidden, Mr Bunyong said.

The fifth defendant, Jidarat Promkhun, 22, confessed to robbery, the only charge police pressed against her.

After her arrest in Myanmar, Preeyanuch apologised to Ms Warisara’s relatives, claiming she had “no intention” to kill her.

According to police investigators, Preeyanuch asked Ms Warisara to get into a car, intending to teach her a lesson because the victim had given police information that led to the arrest of Preeyanuch’s husband on a drug offence.

The 22-year-old victim was strangled to death in the car. Her dismembered body was found in a shallow grave in Khon Kaen’s Khao Suan Kwang district on May 26 last year.

Ms Warisara’s family also filed a civil lawsuit demanding compensation of B10.3 million, but the defendants argue this is too much and wanted it to be settled in court, Mr Bunyong said.

This is Disney Land. Right? Not true

You kill someone, and than you go court because the compensation the family of the murdered/cut up woman ask is to much

Confessed, and now denial

And:  " Oh Judge, we killed, but there was no intention to kill, we were just nice to help to cut up the body and buried the remains for purpose of hiding, Judge. That is all".
