A Bang Saray man has been charged with killing his 80-year-old mother in an argument.
An extremely drunk Sakarawan Sukmak, 40, was scooped up by Sattahip police at his family’s Moo 7 village home June 24. Inside officers found the body of Somwong Sukmak, 80, whose skull had been crushed by a heavy object.
Sakarawan was too drunk to communicate initially with police and taken into custody for questioning. The mother’s body was sent to Sattahip Km. 10 Hospital for a forensic examination.
Relatives called police to the house, saying mother and son had engaged in a heated argument the night before. But after hostilities ceased, the house became quiet and Sakarawan emerged the next day telling neighbors his mother was dead.
Police allege the son killed his mother during the argument, then got drunk afterward.
