A 31-year-old mother has been arrested on charges of aiding and abetting murder after she allowed her lover to whip her 8-year-old son to death in central Thailand.

Ms Yuwadee Akkhathai, 31, was apprehended on Tuesday by members of the Crime Suppression Division (CSD) at the Department of Royal Rainmaking and Agricultural Aviation on Phahon Yothin Road in the Lat Yao district of Bangkok.

The Saraburi Provincial Court issued an arrest warrant for Ms Yuwadee on Dec 17 for aiding and abetting murder, Pol Col Pathak Khwanna, superintendent of CSD sub-division 4, said.

On Oct 20, her young son died in Nong Khae district hospital in Saraburi after being treated for severe injuries caused by physical abuse.

The police learned that Wirat Sae Heng savagely beat the boy when the boy had been living with his mother at a house in Nong Khae district for the past two months.

According to reports, Mr Wirat allegedly tied the boy to a house beam and whipped him repeatedly with a power cable. Instead of releasing the child, he went to bed and left him there. According to reports, he also forced the boy to drink his own urine.

Mr Wirat fled but was caught in Prachuap Khiri Khan’s Kui Buri district on Oct 20.

Police investigators also sought court approval to arrest the boy’s mother on the grounds she failed to protect the child despite witnessing him being tortured.

The woman had journeyed to Bangkok. CSD police arrested her at the Department of Royal Rainmaking and Agricultural Aviation, where she worked as a housekeeper.

During questioning, Ms Yuwadee denied all charges. She said she did not try to help her son out of fear he would only be more harshly tortured.

She told police she had tried to intervene when her new lover first began assaulting the child, but her efforts were unsuccessful.

The CSD officers read the charges to her and she was later handed over to Nong Khae police for legal action.
