‘Brit dad kills wife af­ter she snubbed sex’


A BRI­TISH man is be­ing held af­ter al­legedly kick­ing his Thai wife to death on hol­i­day af­ter she re­fused his de­mands for sex.

Kevin Smitham, 51, is said to have flown into a drunken rage and at­tacked Kanda, 29, ac­cus­ing her of hav­ing an affair.

Hor­ri­fied neigh­bours in Ubon Ratchathani spot­ted her semi-naked on her par­ents’ porch yes­ter­day.

In­spec­tor Gen­eral Watchara­pol Pim­wong said me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer Smitham, orig­i­nally from Nottingham, had ad­mit­ted killing her. “They started ar­gu­ing be­cause he wanted to have sex. His wife re­fused and this caused jeal­ousy,” he said.

The cou­ple lived in Pat­taya, near Bangkok. They have a son, five, and 11-month-old twin boys.
