(2 October) Police in Mae Ai district, Chiang Mai province, said a Lahu ethnic man stabbed his wife to death because she refused to have sexual intercourse with him.
Ms. Napohsee Eueuu, 35, who was also a member of the Lahu tribe, was found dead on her bed. On her body, police discovered several wounds, presumably caused by her husband, Mr. Jajah Mochai. The man was also injured as he tried to killed himself with the same knife he allegedly used to stab his wife.
When the police arrived, the man had been severely injured and was sent to the hospital straight away.
The couple’s neighbours told police that Ms. Napohsee was upset with her husband for spending too much money buying fertilizer for their vegetable farm. She then reportedly tried to avoid having sexual intercourse with him, sparking arguments between the couple.
Police believe Mr. Jajah was enraged with Ms. Napohsee′s rejection, before he fatally stabbed her.
