Ronnachai Panchart, an electrical engineer, confessed to killing his 25-year-old fiancée, Nontiya Krowjatturat- government dental official, early Tuesday morning in Tha Sae district of Chumphon province, Bangkok Post reports.
Ronnachai and Nontiya were supposed to wed on Christmas Eve in Nontiya’s hometown in the province’s Sawi district before the tragic incident.
Police investigators suspect that Ronnachai was dating another woman behind Nontiya and that he was caught with a mystery rich woman when Ronnachai turned up at his house and caught them together.
They had a confrontation, which was also confirmed by Nontiya’s father, however, he did not go into detail about what the fight was about.
Nontiya, known locally as Dr Por was found dead with gunshot wound to her chest inside the hospital’s staff accommodation that morning.
Tambon Salui hospital officials told police that they heard noise which sounded like a firecracker shortly after midnight from the direction of the victim’s lodging, but did not pay any special attention to it.
When Nontiya did not appear for work in the morning, some co-workers got worried and went to the lodging in search for her. They found the door of the lodging locked from inside, but there were traces of the window being burgled.
One of them peeped through a gap in the window and saw a pool of blood on the floor. Then they helped break the door open and found the victim lying dead.
Though the hospital compound has security cameras, the one near her room had been shifted, so that it was facing a different direction. Nearby cameras show a man in a face mask enter the compound at 1am and leave 20 minutes later.
After incriminating clothing worn by the person spotted on CCTV at the scene of the murder was found, police searched Ronnachai’s house and found clothing that matched what the man was wearing in the video.
