An invidious Cambodian wife convinced her Thai husband was cheating stabbed him to death when she found him passed out in her best friend’s Pattaya apartment Sunday.
Her dead spouse lying in a pool of blood next to her, Wan Lin, 27, was waiting for police when they arrived the Naklua home of friend Sawon Mai, 28.
She confessed to killing Nakhon Ratchasima-native Anon Phuakchaya, 27, by stabbing him in the chest with a 20-centimeter-long kitchen knife.
Sawon – and the woman she believed was her husband’s mistress – told police she and Anon had been drinking with others at a party on Soi Nernplubwan.
Anon got too drunk to drive home, so he asked to sleep it off at Sawon’s place. She agreed.
Wan tracked her husband to Sawon’s place and flew into a rage, believing the two were having an affair. Before Sawon could explain, Wan stabbed her husband dead.
