A female soldier was on Tuesday attacked and killed, allegedly by her soldier husband, amid suggestions she had had an extra-marital affair.
Chalong Police in Phuket were notified of the incident at 8.30am at a hotel on Patak Road, Rawai.
Police arrived to find the 39-year-old woman, Ratchadaphon Mongkonrung, a Squadron Leader with the Thai air force. She was unconscious when officers arrived and taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Her husband, a 40-year-old Master Sergeant in the air force, was waiting for police and was arrested.
Police say they checked with hotel staff and found that the couple had been arguing because Nop-anan thought that his wife was having an affair with another man. He kicked her with his feet before calling for help.
They were married and had two children.
Nop-anan is facing charges of attacking and killing another person.
