CHON BURI – Two hundred officers were deployed to prevent a vengeful mob from harming a man charged with murder and rape, police said on Thursday. 

Police said Tiwanon Boonruang, 21, was arrested in connection with the rape and murder of Vimon Taechaban, a 46-year-old beauty clinic owner, last Friday.
