    Brit murders Thai wife for breaking his Star Wars toys

    The dark side clouds everything.

    Wife strangled after smashing up husband’s Star Wars toys

    A husband has been found guilty of murder for strangling his Thai wife after she smashed up his collection of Star Wars toys.


    Left: Rickie La Touche claimed he was a henpecked husband and 'flipped' during an argument with his wife. Right: Pornpilai Srisroy, who was found dead in bed with a pillow covering her face, with some of the Star Wars memorabilia in a cabinet Photo: CAVENDISH PRESS




    02 Nov 2011


    Rickie La Touche, 30, claimed that Pornpilai Srisroy, 28, damaged the Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker memorabilia that he had built up since he was child.

    During a subsequent row, he suffocated his wife then ran off sobbing to his mother who lived in a nearby street.

    A relative discovered Ms Pornpilai lying dead on the couple’s double bed covered by a duvet with a pillow over her face,

    La Touche later told police that his wife had smashed up his Star Wars collection as part of a campaign to make his life “hell”.

    He claimed he was a henpecked husband who “flipped” after she threatened to leave him to go back to her native Thailand.


    La Touche — also known as Rickie Nehls — was found guilty of murder after a trial at Preston Crown Court and jailed for life, with a minimum of 12 years.
    The court heard that he met his wife in a bar while on holiday in Bangkok in 2001. He became “besotted” and they married on his fourth visit to Thailand in 2003 but she could not get a UK visa until two years later.
    Once she moved to Britain, the couple had a child and lived together at various addresses before moving to a terraced house in Leigh, Greater Manchester, where she drew Star Wars sketches and he called her “Boom”.
    He killed her in April during a violent row that began as soon as they woke up at 6.30am. Shortly afterwards he knocked on the door of his mother’s house in an “agitated” state.
    When his mother asked him what was wrong, he replied that he had “killed her”. He stayed with his mother while another relation went to the house and discovered Ms Pornpilai’s body.
    When police arrived La Touche told them: “My wife is from Thailand and she keeps threatening to leave. We argued and she said she was going to make my life hell. She’s put me through it before. I couldn’t let that happen again.
    “I then just remember getting up from on top of her. I think I’ve choked her.”
    La Touche denied murder but admitted manslaughter. He claimed his wife had once hit him with a pool cue and threatened to kill him when he was asleep and then “cut him up and eat him”.
    He claimed that he contacted a domestic abuse hotline in the summer of last year. On the morning of her death he said she had angrily demanded to know what he had done about getting a passport for their young child.
    “I felt faint and was sweating,” he said. “That must have been the point I just flipped. I don’t know how long I had hold of her.’’
    A post mortem examination concluded that the cause of death was asphyxiation.
    After the case, Andy Tattersall of Greater Manchester Police said: “We may never know exactly what happened that morning, but I hope that La Touche’s sentence is of some small comfort to Ms Pornpilai’s family and friends.
    “La Touche will have to live the rest of his life with the awful knowledge that he is responsible for killing his wife.”

    My wife knocked over a $1400 pool cue and cracked the ivory ferrule (the part where the tip attaches) about 20 minutes after I received it- while I felt like strangling her a little bit, in the end I just got it replaced and got on with my life.

    Sometimes you need to count to '10' before you make your move.

    Sounds like a typical story from The Sun newspaper.

    I know a guy though who's wife left him after he spent 26,000 pounds on Star Wars memorabilia.

    edit: On her credit cards.

    - typical star Wars fan then.

    - I suspect they'd have preferred some money

    “La Touche will have to live the rest of his life with the awful knowledge that he is responsible for killing his wife.”
    - and meanwhile the Uk taxpayer is picking up the tab for his board and lodging.

    Saw another photo of her on a news site. Shows her big gut and a large 'bar whore' tattoo on her upper arm. Looks like they very much deserved each other. And no, the tat didn't say 'bar whore'; just the type of big, ugly, badly done tat many of them have - kind of like the one on his neck.

    She is a beauty. Too bad she thought marrying a loser for security was a legitimate choice.

    True love must have clouded her judgement. Obviously she saw him and thought he was a hansumman.

    The headline doesn't seem to tie up with the story.
    Crap journalism.

    I liked the part where he ran sobbing to his Mum's house. Sounds like a real winner....Also love the sentence - 'jailed for life' actually means 12 years?

    yes, shes pretty, but shes got one of those faces that will stay good until the evening of her 39th birthday, and then she'll wake up the next morning looking just like her mum or grandma, jowly, saggy, old and haggard, the minute they turn 40.

    you gotta love these girls for the right reasons, besotted is not the way to go.

    A more accurate h/l might have read.

    "Henpecked British yob (unable to express his frustrations any way other than physically), strangles bitchy Thai tart"

    Shouldn't the story title have read - 'The Empire Strikes back' ?

    He claimed he was a henpecked husband who “flipped” after she threatened to leave him to go back to her native Thailand.

    "
    Henpecked?" Seems he would have been glad to be rid of her, then.
    But it would mean looking after himself on his own, and no sex, or with with expensive hookers.

    This way , on a mere manslaughter charge, he can still have meals served and sex.

    Hen pecked is mild but mental cruelty /torture can turn the mildest man into a lunatic.
    My former Filipina wife had a voice that could have been used in the Exorcist when she was in one of her vengeful evil moods. Her demented scream was 100 times worse than chalk on a blackboard and could send shivers through your body to the point you needed to throw up.
    Cruelty is second nature to some women and results in many passive males having to seek medication to get through a day.
    Absolutely possible for a man to lose it entirely if he has been subjected to this continually.
    We can joke about her destroying his Star Wars collection and him resorting to smothering her but only a man who has been through a period with one of these evil women would understand his total frustration.
    My former would destroy new furniture,smash windows,scream abuse in the middle of the road for all to hear if even the slightest thing did not go her way.
    Maybe I am in the minority but I feel for the guy if he was subjected to anything like that. Jail may actually be a holiday compared to what she had probably put him though.
