British man beats wife to death in Ubon Ratchathani
A British man is in police custody after allegedly kicking his wife to death in fit of rage at a house in Ubon Ratchathani.
Kevin Smitham, 51, reportedly beat his wife Kanda, 29, after he refused to have sex with him and he accused her of having an affair, Banmuang reported.
Locals said that they heard the pair arguing around 10pm on Sunday evening.
However, it wasn’t until the next morning when a local monk found the body of Ms Kanda outside the property in Det Udom district.
Smitham reportedly admitted the attack, telling police he pushed his wife to the ground, before stamping on her twice and strangling her. He then dragged her body outside, covered it with a blanket and left it there until it was discovered on Monday morning.
Despite admitting the attack he said he did not mean to kill his wife.
The couple are reportedly residents of Pattaya and have three children together.
They had been visiting Ms Kanda’s relatives in Ubon Ratchathani during Songkran.
According to her Facebook page, Kanda Smitham ran a popular fitness Facebook page with more than 28,000 followers.
