Last night, beside a Burmese woman’s body, the words “Love you” were scrawled in blood on the wall of a rented room in Klong Toei.
The body of Nanksan Sorimipra was lying facedown and police were unsure if the blood on the wall was hers.
The dispute that ended in the woman’s death was between her and her partner, both Burmese. In the altercation, they were both stabbed.
The man, Saibi Bikhmad, 32 was treated to Lertsin Hospital for the large stab wound in his abdomen in the early evening.
His treatment at the hospital alerted police to search their room on a shophouse’s third floor in the Khlong Toei Market neighborhood on Rama IV Road.
When they found her body, they discovered stab wounds on her hands, stomach and chest and a paring knife was found nearby, reported Khaosod English.
Police were unsure if the couple was married but both worked in the market. It has been reported that Bikhmad was abusive to Sorimipra. Police also noted that the couple was separated for the last several days and that, last night, Bikhmad visited to try to get back together with Sorimipra, but things did not go as he had hoped.
Police said that Bikhmad said that Sorimipra attacked him and he stabbed her and that they will likely charge him for homicide.
