Police have arrested three Thai musicians who allegedly stabbed an American man to death and severely wounded his son after an argument in a bar in Krabi's Muang district early Wednesday morning.
The two were rushed to Bangkok Hospital Phuket after the 3am attack in Tambon Ao Nang. Bobby Carter sustained a fatal knife wound to the stomach, while his son Adam, 27, was severely beaten.
Police later arrested Ratikorn Romin, 27, Sathit Somsa, 40 and Noppanan Yoddecha, 26. According to police, the two tourists and family members visited the Little Longhorn Saloon, where the father and son joined the musicians on stage for a jam session. Carter senior apparently refused to leave the stage at the end of session, leading to an argument with the musicians.
The deceased also reportedly knocked the musicians' tip box to the floor. The three musicians apparently sat outside the bar and another argument broke out when the group emerged from the bar before the musicians reportedly killed the man and injured his son.
