TWO Myanmar men who raped and murdered their countrywoman in Bangkok and fled to their own country were brought back here and have admitted to the crime, INN News said today (August 29).
Metropolitan Police Bureau Chief Pol.Lt.Gen Sanit Mahathavorn announced the arrest of Aung Tin Win and Chiew Chi who are charged with raping and slashing the throat of Molly Thoon, also from Myanmar, before dumping her body in a sewer on August 16 this year.
Prior to the reenactment of their crime today the two suspects had confessed that they had been drinking with the victim on that day and when they got drunk coaxed her to go with them under the bridge to smoke a drug but once there raped her.
They said they stabbed her in the chest with a knife they brought along two to three times because she was screaming loudly and then slashed her throat to make sure she was dead after which they dumped her body in the sewer and fled to Myanmar.
Moreover a check showed that Aung had previously been prosecuted for murdering another person in Myanmar at the age of 16.
