A 22-year-old man has been arrested for reportedly strangling his 21-year-old dating app lover to death after she discovered he already had a wife. Mr. Anuwat Pimmat, 22, was arrested at an eatery in Tambon, Prachuap Khiri Khan, western Thailand, at 10 p.m. on Sunday.

The suspect was wanted on an arrest warrant issued by the Phetchaburi Criminal Court and charged with murder and hiding a body.

His arrest came after the finding of a young woman’s body in the weeds alongside the Phetkasem Highway in Phetchaburi on Friday.

Miss Benjarat Choeijan, a 22-year-old Phuket resident, was the victim. She was wearing a T-shirt and shorts and lacked any identifying paperwork.

During the criminal re-enactment with police on Monday, the suspect stated that he met Miss Benjarat on a dating app and had been in a serious relationship with her since the Songkran festival in April.

He flew from Bangkok to Phuket to meet her, and she picked him up from his hotel in a car. They then traveled to Prachuap Khiri Khan to pick up a pickup truck, which they intended to use to return to her former partner in Bangkok.

On June 3, while going through the Sam Roi Yot area of Prachuap Khiri Khan, Mr Anuwat answered a phone call from his wife. When Miss Benjarat discovered he was not single, she yelled at him and slapped his face, according to Mr Anuwat.

He was outraged and strangled her.

Mr Anuwat told police that he then drove about seeking for a location to dump the body, which he eventually did on the side of the highway in Phetchaburi’s Khao Yoi area.

Her body was found four days later, on Friday.
