Court rejects bail for two students who stabbed to death two rivals

Nakhon Si Thammarat provincial court on Friday rejected bail for two Mathayom 3 students who knifed to death their two rival students, also Mathayom 3-level, of a different school in Muang district.

Relatives of the two suspects put up a surety to ask for bail, but the court rejected the request, claiming that the crime was horrible.

The two suspects, both 15, allegedly stabbed to death the two victims, also 15 years old, from a different school when the two groups came face to face on Ratchadamnoen road in the municipal area.

The suspects were turned over to the police by their relatives on Thursday night. Both reportedly appeared indifferent in front of the police, media and relatives of the victims with some of them in rage.

Pol Lt-Col Arkom Jonnui, the inquiry officer in charge of the case, tried to calm them down, saying that police were processing the case in accordance with procedure.
