AYUTTHAYA — Jenphop Viraporn took the stand on the last day of his trial Friday to defend himself against the prosecution’s case that his recklessness was to blame for the deaths of two grad students in a fiery wreck last year.

 

At the heart of his defense, the 39-year-old scion of a luxury car dealership testified that he tried and failed to slow his speeding Mercedes-Benz before it slammed into a Ford on an Ayutthaya provincial highway, killing the two victims in March 2016. He also disputed police assertions that he resisted sobriety tests.
