In light of his valuable evidence, the Criminal Court on Friday commuted the sentence to life in prison for the shooting of a merchant in late December.

Narongwat Thachada, a former assistant investigator at Bangkok’s Hua Mak police station, was found guilty of the planned crime of Krit Saruwaranon on Dec 29, among other claims.

The sufferer, who owned a real estate company and regulation office, was fatally shot on Chalong Rat Expressway above Pradit Manutham Road. &nbsp,

Prior to the firing, he had five months of employment with Narongwat as his drivers and security guard.

Soon after, Narongwat was detained and charged with premeditated murder, carrying a gun, and possessing a firearm without consent.

An road employee witnessed the pair argue beside the vehicle parked near a walls of the freeway before Narongwat shot Krit five times, killing him instantly.

He claimed to have shot Krit after the businessman had broken his word to pay off a$ 2 million baht debt and get him a promotion. &nbsp,

Narongwat denied the allegations during the research but admitted them throughout the test.

The Criminal Court sentenced him to life in prison before commuting it to a life word. In its decision, the judge found him guilty of all the costs.

Additionally, the jury mandated that the accused pay the victim’s family about 13 million ringgit in compensation.
