Father confesses to poisoning and killing seven day old baby

A 45 year old man has confessed to murdering his seven day old daughter by pouring toilet cleaning fluid down her throat.

Following her murder, the man then buried her in an area in a crematorium in Doi Saket.

Police made the arrest after the child’s mother reported the matter to the police. The mother says that she lives with her own mother and her husband in their doll shop in Thanin Market and on the morning of the 23rd her husband told her that he was taking the child to visit a grandmother. He returned four hours later and told his wife that he had killed their daughter.

The man confessed that he had been planning her death since birth because she was a girl and he already had two girls, a seven and a nine year old.
