NAKHON SI THAMMARAT: A man was attacked and killed by his drunk friend during a drinking binge at a house in Hua Sai district on Sunday, police said.

The savage attack occurred on Sunday afternoon at a house in Moo 6 village in tambon Laem, Pol Lt Col Anusorn Thongsai, chief of Khao Phangkrai police, said.

Witnesses told police three close friends - Oy Othoing, 44, Chakrit Krahomwong, 44, and another man who was not identified - had been drinking heavily at the house. At first they were in a joyful, friendly mood, talking loudly in unison.

But after more than three hours of drinking, all three were very drunk. Things turned unpleasant when Oy and Chakrit had a heated argument. Oy went out and returned with a knife and repeatedly slashed and stabbed Chakrit, leaving deep cuts around his mouth, chin, chest, head, left arm and left leg, and killing him on the spot.

Police were called to the scene.  Oy was still there and immediately surrendered to police.

He was arrested on a charge of murder and taken to the police station for further questioning.
