A Spanish man has been arrested after allegedly murdering a Chilean man on Koh Phangan.

 

Police said they were called to a house in Ban Tai at 1am on Saturday morning.

 

Inside they found signs of a struggle and the body of the 41 year old Chilean man, who had suffered multiple stab wounds and still with a knife lodged in his chest, Manager reported.

 

Police sealed off the scene to prohibit anyone from entering the property and using an interpreter spoke to the deceased man’s Chinese wife who lived with him at the rented house.

 

The man’s wife, who was treated for shock, said she and her husband were sleeping when they were woken by banging on the front door. 

 

Her husband answered the door and was met by the suspect who launched what appeared to be an unprovoked attack.

 

There was a struggle and the Spanish man stabbed the Chilean man several times before fleeing on a motorbike.

 

The deceased man’s wife said she did not know if the two men had any prior disagreements. 

 

The suspect was later arrested after he crashed his motorbike into a ditch while being chased by police.

 

Manager reported that during the interrogation, the suspect gave confusing statements about killing someone.

 

The Spanish man has been charged with murder, posssesion of a weapon in public and theft. 

 

Police said the man was also involved in three other cases regarding the theft of motorbikes on the island.

 

Police said they are waiting for the results of DNA tests as part of their investigation.

Could be right, but it also reports that he crashed his motorbike in a ditch, maybe because he was under the influence of drugs, who knows?

the tragedy is that this kind of crime can be committed with little or no provocation. it would be difficult to monitor that,

Sure, but anything that can help to reduce the risk is a good thing in my book. 
It's very common for people to be released from prison to then re-offend
Here are some statistics in the UK
