Two Russian men were arrested for allegedly killing a compatriot in a low-rent Pattaya apartment.
Roman Chernykh, 21, and Akbar Mamasadykov, 20, were captured at the Paradise Condominium in Jomtien Beach April 6, a day after they allegedly stabbed and slit the throat of roommate Fecir Gusev, 31 at the Porn House daily apartments on Soi Arunothai.
He also suffered heavy bruising to the face, indicating a fight.
Police said the two Russians, after three hours of interrogation, admitted they killed Gusev during a drunken argument.

The two suspects, the dead man and another Russian checked in on March 24, renting two rooms at 200 baht each per night. But Gusev’s roommate moved out and, saying he was too poor to pay the daily rent, moved in with the other two.
Police said the suspects claimed Gusev was always starting arguments and, after a round of drinking, things got violent and they used a broken liquor bottle to kill him.
