Court jails seven for murder of disabled bread man

Six young men and a woman have been convicted of the savage murder of a disabled bread delivery man, sentenced to between 12 and 19 years imprisonment and ordered to pay compensation of 750,000 baht to the victim’s family

They were found guilty in the murder of Somkiat Sichan on May 1, 2016  in Soi Chokechai 4, in front of his sister’s bread shop where he worked, in Lat Phrao district.

two were were each sentenced to 18 years for first-degree murder and must compensate Somkiat’s family a total of 500,000 baht for parental care.

three were, including the sole woman in the case, sentenced to 12 years imprisonment for collusion to murder. were given an additional year for breaking and entering private property.

The criminal court also fined all seven suspects 1,000 baht for carrying a weapon in a public area, and added an additional 250,000 baht payment as reimbursement for the victim’s funeral.

Attorney Anuntchai Chaidech, for the victim's family, said afterwards he would  advise the family to appeal the sentence, seeking more severe penalties. It was a premeditated attack but investigators refused to include this in their case, which led to less severe sentences.

Somkiat was attacked outside his sister’s house and breadshop at Soi Chokchai 4/69 in Lat Phrao district. The assailants stabbed him with three knives -  27 inches, 21 inches and 6 inches long - and threw bricks at his head, he said.

He attempted unsuccessfully to defend himself with a 32-inch knife of his own, but was killed, and the suspects fled.

“I respect the court’s decision on the sentencing, but I will prepare necessary paperwork to appeal to the court regarding the severity of the crime, which deserves a greater punishment,” Mr Anuntchai said.

Somkiat’s mother, who attended the hearing with Mr Anuntchai and relatives, expressed dissatisfaction that everyone who was involved in the killing of her son continued to deny their involvement.

“It has been over a year since they took away my son, and we have all slowly learned to accept this truth and move on. Although the anger and frustration has started to dissipate, I hope justice will be served,” Ms Thongkham said.

The murder gained a lot of public attention when CCTV camera footage circulated on the internet showing the partially disabled man being savagely attacked.

There were allegations the investigation had been slowed down because four were reported to be police officers’ sons.

Family fears injustice in brawl-murder

NAKHON RATCHASIMA: The family of a disabled man who was stabbed to death last Sunday (May 1) insisted they will not have the victim’s body cremated as they fear that four of the six suspects who are the sons of police officers will not be brought to justice.

Rungnapa Sae-Iew, the 38-year-old wife of disabled bread deliveryman, Somkiat Sichan, who was killed in a deadly brawl, said that she and other family members agreed to postpone the cremation ceremony, which was scheduled to be held yesterday (May 5), until legal action is taken against the six suspects.

“We are afraid that the investigation will make slow progress because four of the suspects are sons of policemen. So we just want to seek justice for Somkiat today.

“Somkiat is dead. He can’t speak for himself because he was brutally murdered. The suspects claimed that Somkiat attacked them first. But he was a family man and had never displayed aggressive behaviour. I don’t believe he was the one who started the fight,” Mrs Rungnapa said.

The six men were arrested by Chokechai police on Sunday after an altercation with Somkiat, who suffered from a leg disability, in Bangkok’s Lat Phrao district turned violent. Somkiat was stabbed to death and one attacker was seriously wounded.

The violence erupted after the suspects made fun of Somkiat’s job. Their conflict over a motorcycle incident is also believed to have fuelled the attack.

Two of the suspects are Akkaradet Thatsana, 22, and an 18-year-old boy. The other four were identified as Phiraphon Kerdjapo, 21; Arin Yotphonganan, 20; Mek Phonkraison, 19; and Monmanat Saengpho, 22. The last four are the sons of police officers.

A police source said three of the police officers hold the rank of police senior sergeant major while the other is a police lieutenant.

Two of the police senior sergeant majors work at Metropolitan Police Division 4 overseeing the Chokechai area where the brawl and murder took place. One police senior sergeant major and the police lieutenant work at Chokechai police station.

Meanwhile, acting city police chief Sanit Mahathaworn said a girlfriend of one of the suspects will be summoned for questioning after Anantachai Chaidet, a lawyer who witnessed the attack, lodged a complaint against her for allegedly threatening to harm him.

Mr Anantachai, whose law firm is located in the vicinity of the crime scene, filed a complaint yesterday at Chokechai police station against the woman for allegedly posting messages on her Facebook page threatening to harm him and attack his law firm, in violation of the Computer Crime Act. He also submitted pictures of the woman’s Facebook page with the threatening messages to police as evidence.

The threat came after the lawyer, who witnessed the killing, gave an interview about the attack on a television programme broadcast by a domestic media outlet on Tuesday (May 3).

The lawyer said the woman’s actions are regarded as intimidating a witness which would make other witnesses not want to testify in the investigation as they may fear for their own safety.

The intimidation also indicated that the suspects, including their friends and families, did not feel guilty about their actions, said the lawyer.

Somkiat's elder sister, Thanchanok, said her neighbours who witnessed the incident did not want to testify to police as they feared being attacked by friends of the suspects.

Mr Anantachai said that even though Phiraphon, who was hurt in the fight, claimed he stabbed Somkiat to defend himself as the victim had attacked him first with a knife, footage captured by a security camera contradicted Phiraphon’s account.

Another group of self-entitled, arrogant Thai guys go berserk for no reason......good example of what's wrong with male Thainess. As an aside, they had swords, not knives and they had girls with them which the reports are calling underage....does that mean these 20 something murderers are also a bunch of pedos as these girls are described as underage and their girlfriends?  :uhm

‘I Watched Him as He Died,’ Witness to Disabled Man’s Murder Recalls

Ananchai Chaiyadech was working in his office Sunday morning. Outside, a group of young men who had been drinking for six hours passed a bread stall and taunted the disabled man working there.

“They were so drunk, you could see it in their eyes,” said the lawyer, estimating they drank from 2am until 8am.

That man, Somkiat Srichan, took offense and shouted back. Ananchai felt both powerless and horrified by what happened next, as he watched the six men use knives and bricks to stab and beat Somkiat, who lacked the use of one leg and tried hopping away, to death in the street.

“Can you imagine seeing someone you know being murdered right in front of you?” Ananchai said. “He kept backing off. He was fleeing for his life. He was cornered in the end, but I couldn’t help him.”

Several of the suspects continued slashing at Somkiat’s lifeless body, according to a police report of the incident, when officers arrived at the scene, prompting them to fire shots into the air to get control of the situation.

Four of the six men arrested for Somkiat’s murder were sons of police officers. The entire thing was recorded by a nearby mobile phone camera. That footage went viral after it was posted on social media, drawing widespread attention to the case.

“In my 31 years as a lawyer, I had never seen a person killing another person before,” said Ananchai, who is now involved in the case as both lawyer and witness. “And I couldn’t do anything to help him.”

We often see those who commit crimes are caught and paraded by police but rarely a follow up to what punishment or not is meted out to them through the courts.  Money buys freedom as well as who you are connected to.  A very corrupt country.

So true, Aussie.  It's all a show, fake, just like almost everything in Thailand. Even the women are fake.  You stick your hand down there and instead of finding a taco, there's a sausage.  These punks will get a slap on the wrist and be on their way.  In Thailand you pay a "user fee" to break the law.

Six suspects held for death of disabled man

Now they're ashamed. Police charged these five and a hospitalised sixth men in their early 20s for attacking and killing a 36-year-old disabled man with swords, rocks, fists on Sunday. (Photo by Pornprom Satrabhaya)

Four of six suspects arrested over a brawl that resulted in the death of a disabled man are reported to be the sons of police officers, posing an immediate challenge to the investigation.

Police have assured they will treat the case with an even hand, saying links to the police force will not affect how the suspects are treated.

"The incident raises concerns over the prosecution because four suspects are reportedly the sons of policemen, but no matter who they are we will strive for justice," acting city police chief Sanit Mahathaworn insisted Monday. "Punishments will be based on facts."

The six men were arrested by Chokchai police after an altercation with bread deliveryman Somkiat Sichan, 36, who had difficulty walking, on Sunday morning turned violent. One suspect and the victim were injured. Somkiat was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

According to an eyewitness, Somkiat was stabbed in the neck by a suspect identified only as a man wearing red.

"I tried to stop them, but the men pointed their knives at me," said the witness, Methat Phonprasoet, who is also Somkiat's nephew.

Mr Methat was among Somkiat's relatives who urged authorities to handle the case fairly.

The four suspects reportedly related to officers are Thiraphon and Arin Yotphonganan, aged 21 and 20 respectively, Mek Phonkraison, 19, and Monmanat Saengpho, 22. All are believed to be the sons of officers attached to Metropolitan Police Division 4, which oversees Chokchai where the brawl took place.

The two other suspects were identified as Akkaradet Thatsana, 22, and an 18-year-old whose identity was was withheld.

Somkiat's older sister, Thanchanok Sichan, said a police officer who claimed to be the father of one suspect met her to apologise. She "felt sympathetic" towards him but still demanded a fair investigation.

Somkiat, a father of two, helped Ms Thanchanok run her bread business for three years. His relatives said the man was never confrontational and had not been involved in a quarrel until he met the six suspects.

Somkiat had an altercation with the suspects following a motorcycle incident earlier on Sunday. Mr Methat said Somkait had told him about the incident, adding that Somkiat demanded an apology from the suspects who had also bullied him for his disability.

The six men later arrived at the bread shop, said Ananchai Chaidet, who operates a law firm near the shop on Soi Chokchai 4.

Mr Ananchai claimed he heard a woman, believed to be the girlfriend of one of the suspects related to an officer, tell the suspects to kill Somkiat during the brawl.

Mr Methat said he later arrived at the bread shop and found a bloody scene. After the arrest, one suspect reportedly admitted to police the group had been drinking alcohol prior to the incident.

Police are examining evidence including knives and a brick. Security camera footage is also being used to identify the cause of the incident.

Video footage will provide a clearer picture of the incident and whoever killed Somkiat will be charged with murder, Pol Lt Gen Sanit said. The suspects are currently charged with assault causing death and possessing weapons, Chokchai police say.
