BANGKOK: -- The Ratchadapisek Criminal Court in Bangkok will give a verdict on the murder case in which Spanish national Artur Segarra Princep was accused in the gruesome murder of fellow countryman David Bernat last January.

 

The 38-year-old Segarra, who arrives at court with a smile while showing a handwriting in his palm that quoted the Bible's Luke 23:34 [Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”], is accused of detaining and torturing Bernat at his apartment in Huai Kwang area for ten days between January 20 and 30 of last year. 

 

It was alleged that he forced Bernat to reveal his ATM PIN, which Segarra then used to steal over Bt700,000. Segarra allegedly force fed Bernat a cocktail of drugs, covered the victim’s head with a plastic bag and duct tape to suffocate him to death. Segarra then allegedly dismembered the victim’s frozen corpse and dumps the body parts in various spots along the Chao Phraya River. 

 

Following the body part discovery, Segarra was arrested in Cambodia on February 7 that year and sent a day later to Thailand. Having been detained in the Bangkok Remand Prison, he had pleaded not guilty in previous court hearings to the 13 charges including premeditated murder, kidnapping, concealing a body, torture and theft.
