Father stalks and shoots his own daughter in north east Thailand

Thai caption: Father shot his own child

 
Sanook reported that a father - angry that his teenage daughter was living with her boyfriend - stalked and shot her with an air rifle. 
 
"Em", 18, told the media that while she was washing up last Wednesday at her boyfriend's house she heard the sound of a gun and something hit the doorframe and ricocheted into a cabinet. She found an airgun pellet on a washing machine. 
 
Then next day while she was out the back of the house in Chumphonburi, Surin, she felt a pain in her neck. There was blood and she initially thought she had been stung by an insect. 
 
A neighbor heard another shot at that time. 
 
Em ran into the house where her boyfriend's mother thought she had been shot.
 
Doctors at a hospital in Buriram confirmed that a pellet was embedded in her neck. They would not remove it as it was dangerously near an artery. They would wait until it moved nearer the surface of the skin. 
 
Meanwhile the father of the victim - Preecha, 50 - contacted Pol Capt Theerawat Khamnin of the Chumphonburi police to admit what he had done. He is now being held in custody after he was arrested. 
 
Em said she forgives him but wants the case to run its course. 
 
Sanook reported that the father was angry that his daughter defied him and went to live at the house of her boyfriend. 
 
On two previous occasions the police and the phu yai ban ( a village elder) had got involved after he threatened to kill her.

So you can have sex with an 18 year old Thai girl without risking jail?

(As the police haven't arrested the boyfriend)

And nothing her parents can legally do.

What is the Thailand Age of Consent?

The Age of Consent in Thailand is 15 years old. The age of consent is the minimum age at which an individual is considered legally old enough to consent to participation in sexual activity. Individuals aged 14 or younger in Thailand are not legally able to consent to sexual activity, and such activity may result in prosecution for statutory rape or the equivalent local law.

I thought parental consent was also required from 15years to 18years.

From wiki so take with a pinch of salt

 

The age of consent in Thailand is 15 regardless of gender or sexual orientation, as specified by article 279 of the Thai Criminal Code. The current legislation applies to all regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

However, parts of the Prevention and Suppression of Prostitution Act, which disallow any sexual contact with prostitutes under the age of 18, are widely interpreted by some local authorities to cover sexual acts classed as "obscenity for personal gratification". Also, from the Penal Code Amendment Actof 1997 Section 283bis, having sex with an adolescent under 18 is a compoundable offense even with the consent of that person. The parent or the adolescent may file charges against the other side if they later regret their own action. This ostensibly makes the Thai unfettered age of consent 18.

A high-profile example of this application of the law was a statutory rape charge filed against the lead singer of the Thai band Big Ass for allegedly having had sex with a (then) 16-year-old girl. The charge was filed by the girl after the singer refused to take responsibility for her baby. The singer has since been cleared of being the baby's father due to the results of a paternity test and he received 2 years suspended sentence

so he commits what, in one case, was almost a manslaughter... 

 

can see his excuse was that "he used an air rifle because no one can die from that!" 🤫

Not sure an air rifle has the power to kill.

But still a nasty think to do.

Possibly if steel,and goes through the eye at close range,otherwise,no.
