Police and rescue medics rushed to the scene of an attack on a man in Chumpon on Monday night.
On a concrete road outside a house they found 38 year old Anon with serious wounds to his head and arm. He was taken to Sawee Hospital where relatives gathered and talked to reporters.
It emerged that the attacker was Anon’s estranged wife Nit, 45.
Both are construction workers living in the Ban Huay Kaew area of Na Sak district.
They had been living together for a year until Anon moved out following jealous arguments.
But he still went round to his wife’s house.
On Monday it appears that Nit attacked him with a 12 inch “Ito” kitchen knife.
Police found the bloodstained knife and arrested her.
A video showed the crumpled body of the man on the road.
