Norwegian Faces Death Penalty In Thailand – Wife Found In Dumpster


Recommended Posts

First he claimed she hit her head against a wall during an arguement, then, he changed his story and claimed she fell down the stairs.

He couldn't risk her body being found as the seven properties that he got rental incomes from were in her name. If the body was found, her children would have inherited the properties and his income stream would end.

I reckon he murdered her in a jealous rage when she refused to get back with him. Reckon she threatened to take the properties away.

As per normal the headline is designed to grab your attention. I suppose technically he could get the death penalty but I seriously doubt it. More likely a sentence based on something like accidentally causing death as it will be pretty difficult to prove premeditated murder. Even if sentenced to jail he could be free on bail while waiting on appeal. Who knows in a country where policemen are sentenced to death & then allowed bail.

Ahh, Dokset's lone defender returns. When the case originally broke and the thread on TV started you defended him, but, you were wrong when he finally admitted his guilt at hiding the body. Short memory?

He had managed to hide the body for over two years until the maid noticed strange smells around the house and the police raided the villa.

Do the journalists actually believe the stuff they are fed, or do they just have no choice but to report it the way the police tell them? haha If this was a week after she was killed, ok... but two years and she is just now starting to smell things? Riiiiiiiight. The maid must've wanted more blackmail money, or the police, or both?

yes a bit strange

Don't believe they ever executed a westerner in Thailand, or am I wrong?

I don't know, but if so, it wouldn't hurt if he got the chop. The arrogance and complacency of some Westerners needs to be met with a clear message.

My, aren't we bloodthirsty. Since when have arrogance and complacency been capital offenses. What if it was an accident?

Being guilty of killing her is not the same as being guilty of murder. As nobody else was present it's going to be very difficult to "prove" murder, because in the absence of any other evidence his story that he killed he accidentally might just be the truth.. we don't know, we were not there.

Evidence that she died of a blow to the head may be consistent with falling down the stairs, unless of course they can show a murder weapon.

Of course, if he really did kill her accidentally and then for whatever mental reasons was in denial that she was in the bin locked in the basement, he could conceivably be innocent of hiding her body if they cannot show clear criminal intent. Criminal intent is everything in a case like this, and it's possible (I'm not making any judgement on if it's likely not), just possible that he was so traumatized by her death that he was in denial and hence was innocent through lack of intent. If I was his lawyer I'd possibly run with that defense in the hope that there is no evidence to the contrary, and in any fair system of justice (again, I make no judgement about the likelihood of that) he SHOULD be acquitted in the absence of evidence to the contrary.

Remember, he does not tecnically need evidence to back up his story, it's the prosecution who need to prove he is lying. That's the nature and the flaw in a advisorial system of justice.

Hmmm, not really. A guy with a gun firing at will is one thing but an argument with NO gun is another thing. Please plug your brain in when you post. coffee1.gif

so a Thai murderer get release on bail but death is require for this Norwegian ? Strange justice .. I dont excuse this guy of course , any murderers regardless of their nationality should have the same treatment.

Many western countries (UK etc) grant bail to persons charged with murder. Bail is typically withheld if the person poses a flight risk or a risk to himself or others. My friend was murdered by his wife in Canada some years back and was released on bail before her trial ... she was not considered a flight risk or a danger to others. Thailand is not so unusual in this regard.

Alleged argument.

Just as likely she was hit with his gun, which apparently he was quite vocal about having.

Please plug your brain in when you post.
