Maj Korapol Leangboonjinda from the Patong Police arrested Prangthawas Sithikarn, 22, from Udonthani at 3:44am today after he stabbed his friend to death at a rented home in Soi Sainam Yen 1 on Sainam Yen Rd in Patong. Police seized from Prangthawas an eight inch knife used in the murder.

The arrest of Prangthawas came after Patong Police received a call to investigate a stabbing incident at the address around 3:44am.

When police arrived the home was locked from inside. However, they forced the door open and found Prangthawas drunk inside. Also inside was the body of the Mr Parinya Rassan lying in a pool of blood in the bathroom. Mr Parinya had been stabbed twice in his chest, police said.

Prangthawas told police that he stabbed Mr Parinya because he asked him for money to go home to Khon Kaen. Prangthawas did not have the money to give him so they got into an argument.

Prangthawas said he was so mad that he grabbed the knife and stabbed Mr Parinya twice.

A witness to the incident, Chaowalit Chomkhuntod, told police that he woke up in the home to find Prangthawas holding a bloody knife so he ran out of the room and called for help.

Prangthawas was taken to Patong Police Station and charged with murder.

The fool has the mental capacity ofa crazed animal, and he should be treated like one...yes, as in put to sleep.  Another unnecessary and unwanted burden on Thai society...just make him disappear.

slippery snake, Is just absence of empathy. Probably not brought up, just 'grown up'.

What is wrong with these people ? he couldn't say 'sorry I don't have any money to give you',,,,  instead I'll just kill you. 
I guess he won't have many other friends stick around now..     Makes the guy that tried to kill his ex when she took everything off him, seem pretty tame !!!
