PHAYAO – Police in the Northern city of Phayao arrested a Thai woman on Sunday night after she allegedly stabbed her husband to death during a dispute, while drinking with him in the evening, police said.
When police arrived at the rented house in Phayao’s Chiang Kham district, Ussanee Jaipern, 53, was still drunk.
Somboon’s sister, Pimpika Sa-ingkaew, 53, called police after she found her brother severely injured on his bed. He died shortly after.
Pimpika told police that the couple were construction workers and drank together every evening, leading to drunk quarrels.
Pimpika said when she saw her brother quarreling with Ussanee, she led him to his bed but his wife followed to continue the quarrel.
Pimpika said when she noticed the quarrel had suddenly turned quiet, she went to check and found her brother barely breathing and with stab wounds to his neck and chest, and he stopped breathing shortly afterward.
