The appeals court refused to reduce the requested sentence because of the inhumane nature of the crime.

The shooting took place on January 9, 2020, when 39-year-old Prasittichai robbed the Aurora gold shop in the Robinson department store of Lop Buri.

He shot and killed a mall security guard, a two-year-old boy walking with his mother and a woman employed by the gold shop. He also injured four other people.

The man-made off with 33 gold chains worth about 600,000 baht.
