A man who savagely murdered his girlfriend in an apartment in Nonthaburi province on Jan 1 has been arrested trying to flee the country and has admitted to the crime, police said on Tuesday.
Pairoj Nanthatanti, 22, was arrested in Chiang Mai province when he was allegedly trying to sneak out of the country. He was apprehended along with Adisak Kruep-am, 61, who was helping the suspect escape.
Police tracked them down near the Thai-Myanmar border in Mae Ai district in the far north of Chiang Mai.
The suspect admitted to his crime, according to police, saying that he was in a relationship with the victim, Archaranee Rakchue, 22, for about one year.
During that time she was involved with several other men, which triggered a fight between them, he said.
Mr Pairoj said he was drunk and the victim insulted him and his mother so he lost his temper and killed her.
The woman's throat was slashed and her left ear was severed. There were many stab marks on her left arm and also a deep cut in her groin area and burn marks all over her body. There was handwriting on her lower belly and both calves. Her cat was also killed, its body found next to the bed.
After the murder, he fled to Ratchaburi province and then contacted Mr Adisak to help him get out of the country.
Police said the suspect has seven outstanding warrants for his arrest, including assault, carrying a gun without a licence and attempted bribery.
He is also wanted for his part in a 21 million baht scam when he was a Krung Thai bank employee in 2009.
