    Post Woman gets 5 years in jail for stomping foreign boyfriend to death

    A 43-year-old woman who assaulted her live-in boyfriend and stomped him to death after a quarrel was sentenced to five-and-a-half years’ jail for culpable homicide.

    Sukanya Praphuttha, a Thai national who is a permanent resident here, pleaded guilty to killing 55-year-old handyman Lee Yang Boo by using her right foot to stomp the left side of his head at their North Bridge Road flat.

    The High Court heard that sometime during the assault in the early hours of March 1, 2015, a neighbour heard the Singaporean man – who was 10kg lighter than his girlfriend – shouting “don’t beat me” and “stop beating me”.

    Sukanya and Lee had lived together at the rented flat for seven years and had a tumultuous relationship, marked often with quarrels and, at times, physical fights.

    An autopsy concluded that Lee died from a head injury. A total of 47 bruises were found all over his body.

    Sukanya was initially charged with murder but the charge was reduced to culpable homicide, which carries a maximum of 10 years’ jail.

    Deputy Public Prosecutor Mohamed Faizal sought six years’ jail, arguing that Sukanya had attacked Lee when he was already “down for the count”.

    Sukanya’s lawyer Cheryl Ng argued that she was triggered to act when Lee insulted her parents. — The Straits Times/Asia News Network

    I guess the poor guy let himself stomped because he thought she would eventually stop (before killing him) and that if he retaliated he would spend between 10 and 15 years in jail...

    By the picture she doesn't look particularly fit
    I then guess you couldn't restrain a girl 10 kg heavier than you ? Unless you were drunk and she were'nt that would mean you're a feeble poor lass but I doubt it

    Well, the 1/4 gram of coke lady was set up and her sentence paid for by those that set her up. Don't take on rich and powerful Thais in Thailand.


    This Thai, well, she only killed a foreigner, not a Thai. So, you know.


    Thailand motoring along as normal. Songkran soon. Sanook Maak loy. Everybody got your orange shirt and Fino for riding the children about?
