Phang Nga police today charged a loan shark with masterminding a murder by paying just Bt2,500 to have a woman killed.

The victim, 38-year-old Leung Phrasana, was shot dead and dumped in a palm tree plantation in Takua Thung district on August 7.

Police launched a manhunt and quickly tracked down the hitman, Phakorn Thongwon, 27. Investigators said Phakorn confessed on August 13 that he was hired by a shark loan for only Bt2,500.

Police then arrested Suthep Saryong, 55, and charged him with contract murder. The accused mastermind is being detained at Takua Thung Police Station for interrogation.
