The mother of two children was sentenced to death for poisoning them and posting images of them online to solicit donations. A criminal court sentenced Nattiwan Rakkunjet to death after prosecutors recommended her indictment.

According to the court, Nattiwan adopted one of the children when she was 4 years old on April 22, 2015. As soon as Nattiwan adopted the little girl, she immediately started feeding her food laced with mildly corrosive cleaning liquid.

In the course of time, the girl became increasingly ill and vomited blood from her gastrointestinal tract. Her frequent hospitalizations led to her death on August 12, 2019.

From September 2017 to May 2020, Nattiwan also gave poisoned meals to her own son, who was 2 years old at the time. His health also deteriorated.

After poisoning her children she posted photos of them on Facebook to attracted large amounts of online donations. She was arrested on May 18, 2020.

Her crimes included using children as con artists to solicit donations, murder and attempted murder, fraud and providing false information to a computer system.

Despite her confession, the court did not consider her confession grounds for a reduced sentence due to the overwhelming evidence against her.

Nattiwan was also ordered to return 42,000 baht of donations she received along with the mobile phones she bought with the funds.
