A British man accused of kicking his Thai wife to death when she refused him s-x was found with fatal injuries in prison, the Foreign Office has confirmed.
Kevin Smitham, 51, from Nottingham, was awaiting trial for the brutal murder of his Thai wife Kandra Smitham after her death on April 15 last year.
He was arrested and held in custody but discovered with fatal injuries near an outbuilding on the edge of Thailand’s Ubon Ratchathani Central Prison in August last year. He died later in hospital.
The couple, who had two young children together, had been staying with Mrs Smitham’s parents in Ubon Ratchathani, in the northeast of the country, for the Songkran New Year festival.
Shocked neighbours reportedly found 29-year-old Kandra’s body under a blanket early on April 16, 2018.
Police claimed at the time Mr Smitham attacked her, covered her body and then went to bed.
He was arrested and held in custody, but was discovered with fatal injuries close to an outbuilding on the perimeter of the prison in August last year. He died later in hospital.
It is not yet known how he received the injuries.
An FCO spokesperson today told The Sun Online: “Our staff are providing support and advice to the family of a British man who died in Thailand in August 2018, and they remain in touch with the local authorities.”Source:
