British Man Who Allegedly Beat Thai Wife to Death ‘Mysteriously’ Dies in Prison

Recommended Posts

A British man who was suspected of beating his Thai wife to death has reportedly died inside a prison in Thailand due to injuries from unknown circumstances.


Originally from Nottingham, 51-year-old Kevin Smitham was imprisoned following accusations that he kicked and strangled his wife, 29-year-old Kandra Smitham on April 15 last year after she refused to have sex with him. Neighbors discovered her body under a blanket the next day.


Police investigations revealed that Smitham had attacked her, covered her body and then went to bed.


“I arrived and found a woman lying naked in front of the house and called officials from the rescue foundation,” Inspector General Watcharapol Pimwong was quoted as saying.


“The victim had a blanket covering her. There were many bruises on the face and body. She had been dead for several hours. The victim’s husband confessed to killing his wife. He said that he did not mean to kill her.”


Smitham was then arrested and detained at the Ubon Ratchathani Central Prison to await his trial for “involuntary manslaughter,” BBC reports.


In August, Smitham was found with fatal injuries on the perimeter of the prison and died later in a hospital, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has confirmed this week. It is currently unknown how he ended up with these injuries.

Mysteriously? What is the mystery?  What will be really mysterious is that no one will be charged in the murder...just another soi dog farang bites the dust...☠

In most Prisons of the world a wife murderer or pedophile will have a hard time. 

They are usually outed and free for all.

In LoS is it even more easy get a "cheap service" (Inmate) who does the job for a few baht to comfort his life a little more in prison. 


Beating his wife to death and leave her dying, is in my eyes heartless enough to deserve the end.

If she would have been a relative of mine I would be a "sponsor" for sure.


He 51 she 29 so we all can estimate where she came from. 

The right way a "real man" does in such a case is finish the relationship and pick another wh*re but not using any force on a woman..

Well it's unknown; but one can guess. Somebody put out a contract on him. Thai prisons are a piece of piss if you have money; without money you're gonna suffer. Still, I always look on it as a learning experience - will definitely learn Thai if I'm in that environment; probably learn a lot about drugs as well..
