A British man has been arrested for allegedly kicking his wife to death when she refused to have sex with him in Thailand.
Kevin Smitham, 51 – said to be originally from Nottingham – had reportedly been staying with wife Kanda, 29, and their parents in Ubon Ratchathani during the local new year holiday when the incident happened last night.
Police said he kicked her to death before covering her body with a blanket and then calmly going to bed.
Shocked neighbours are reported to have seen the body this morning and called authorities.
Police said they arrived and found fitness fanatic Kanda’s body – in only a pair of knickers – on the ground in front of the family’s single-storey home at 6.30am today local time (12.30am UK time).
