Two Men Sentenced To Death For Killing Owner Of iPhone 7
Two Thai men have been sentenced to death after they were found guilty of murder.
At the trial in court on Wednesday, police told the court that in January, Wasin Luengjam, 26, was stabbed to death by 2 men in a Bangkok suburb who had also slit his throat.
The incident was caught on a surveillance camera.
Both men, later identified as Kittikorn Wikaha, 26 and Supatchai Jansri, 25, were caught by police in a nearby province while they were on the run.
Police said some cash and a watch remained on Wasin’s body.
Both Kittikorn and Supatchai admitted their crimes.
DPA news agency quoted the police as saying that evidence led to their confessions.
It is unclear if both men will appeal the decision.
Since their arrests and detention in January, none of their relatives bailed them. They have cited lack of money as their main reason.
In March, a top-level provincial court upheld the death sentences of two migrant workers from Myanmar found guilty of murdering two British tourists on the southern island of Koh Tao in 2014.
Thailand last carried out the death penalty in August 2009.
