BANGKOK — A 54-year-old woman has been arrested for allegedly stabbing her 51-year-old lover to death on Saturday night in Chiang Mai province after she reportedly accused him of seeing another woman, provincial police deputy chief Pol Colonel Piyapan Pattarapongsin said on Sunday.

Alcohol drink-stall vendor Lamyong Chandaeng was accused of stabbing her lover Suparp Saengkham in the back with a six-inch-long knife in front of a grocery shop near Wat pa Tum Hong in Tambon Pa Khum, Phrao district, at 8pm on Saturday.


Suparp was rushed to Phrao Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Lamyong was brought to perform a crime re-enactment on Sunday at the scene where she and the deceased reportedly got into a heated argument at her house over Suparp seeing another woman. Suparp’s first wife is paralyzed.


When Suparp left to have a drink at the grocery shop in the neighborhood, Lamyong followed him and further excoriated him at which point they got into a physical fight.

She allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed Suparp in the back, reportedly puncturing his lung.  Police initially charged Lamyong with a fatal assault.
