A Trang murder suspect was arrested in Satun on Wednesday, just 24 hours before the statute of limitations on a 20-year-old murder case was due to expire.

Kredis Sombatthong, 41, a resident of Trang's Yan Ta Khao district, was arrested by Crime Suppression Division police in Satun’s Khun Ka Long district on Thursday under a warrant issued by the Betong Court on January 15, 2003.

He was accused of murdering Thaweep Nookong in July 1998 following a dispute. Thaweep accused Kredis of molesting his girlfriend and Thaweep allegedly stabbed him during the quarrel in Yala’s Betong district.
