After having arrested a Burmese worker, 24 year old Han Noui Lane and his alleged accomplice 32 year old Ang Htoui O in Kathu, Chalong Police have taken the men to the crime scene, a staff room at the back of restaurant in Rawai, for a reenactment.

Han Noui Lane has been charged for murdering his ex-girlfriend, 24 year old Thida Mo. He’s confessed to Police that he was jealous and angry because he failed to reconcile their relationship and learned that she had started a new relationship. According to Police, he strangled her using a belt. Her dead body was found at about midnight on Thursday, August 10.

Han Noui Lane, and Ang Htoui O who allegedly drove him to her room, stole all her valuables, which police found later include 2 mobile phones, 3,500 Baht in cash, a gold ring, an earring and a shoulder bag. The pair was also in possession of 9,000 Baht in cash they received from selling her golden bracelet.
