Phuket –

A wanted suspect who was involved in the murder of a business woman in Phuket has been arrested in Nakhon Si Thammarat after 15 years.

The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) reported earlier this week that they have arrested a man identified only as Mr. Wiriyo, 55, in Nakhon Si Thammarat.

The arrest followed an incident in which a group of six suspects opened fire at a couple in Phuket, a business man and woman. The business woman was pronounced dead at the scene while the business man sustained severe injuries.

Five other suspects were arrested previously . The last suspect, Mr. Wiriyo, reportedly admitted that he was hired to ride a motorbike with a gunman. He received 10,000 baht as a rider.

He remains in custody as of press time.
