Man, 26, pleads guilty to brutally murdering victim for iPhone


Kittikorn Wikaha, 26, yesterday pleaded guilty at Bangkok’s Ratchadapisek Criminal Court to stabbing to death university graduate Wasin Luangjame for his iPhone 6 in a January 4 robbery.

But the alleged getaway motorist Supatchai Jansri, 25, denied murder and the court judge will examine evidence at a session set for February 27.
Wasin, 26, was murdered in Lat Phrao district on the night after two men demanded he hand over his Bt26,000 smartphone. The incident was captured on CCTV footage that went viral in social media.
