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.
About 100 people, including the victim's relatives and friends, constantly yelled and cursed the man while he was re-enacting the crime.
Mr Tiwanon confessed to the police that he was drunk and wanted sex. He sneaked into the victim's bedroom and raped her. The man said he was afraid that the woman might tell other people so he killed her.
Police said the man fled the province but was tracked down and arrested in Nakhon Pathom province.
