A 46-year-old Chinese man was taken into police custody late Friday night having confessed to killing a bargirl at his condo in Pattaya.
Mr Wang Qi met the unnamed woman on September 27 on Walking Street and spent time with her at his condo but refused to let her go when she wanted to leave.
He told police they became involved in a heated argument that led to him strangling her to death.
Wang then attempted to take his own life with sleeping pills but failed and spent four days in hospital returning to his condo on October 4 where the body of the deceased remained.
Guilt set in and he called a Chinese “agency” to confess his crime. He then surrendered to police and admitted to murdering the bargirl.
He was charged with murder and concealing a body before being remanded pending an appearance in court.
