Summoned to a three-storey townhouse on Ram Inthra Soi 109, police found 29-year-old Nanthachaya “Noon” Janmokha dead in a second-floor bedroom with severe injuries to the head. 

She was seven months pregnant. The unborn child died too.

A bloodstained hammer was found nearby.

Her husband Thanawat, also 29, told police the attacker was a 57-year-old motorcycle-taxi driver identified only as Phoomjai, “Jai” for short. 

He said Phoomjai had a common-law relationship with Nanthachaya’s mother Pim and complained whenever she spent time talking to an uncle of the victim.

Pim, weary of his jealousy, left him to live with relatives in Amnat Charoen. 

Phoomjai allegedly threatened her by phone, saying if she didn’t return, he would kill her daughter.

Thanawat and Pim run a salon together.
