A Mon tribesman has been arrested for killing a fellow construction worker in Sattahip.

Supichart Chanaharn, 25, died of a slit throat at the construction camp for S. Suntorn Glassworks on Sukhumvit Soi 15. Paramedics tried to save him, but Supichart expired due to severe blood loss.

Police shortly after arrested the suspect, identified only as Tualek, walking on a nearby road.

The victim’s girlfriend told police that they were drinking after work when an argument later broke out between her boyfriend and Tualek, which soon turned violent.

Tualek, she said, grabbed a large knife and slit Supichart’s throat.

Police said Tualek confessed, explaining that he lost his temper after being verbally abused, attacked and intoxicated.
