PHUKET – January 12,2013; Dokset appeared in court today looking considerably slimmer than at the time of his arrest, as evidence from the family of his ex-girlfriend Rungnapa “June” Suktong, age 33, was heard.

 

The trial will continue on February 22 with more evidence from Ms Rungnapa’s family.

 

Dokset has denied charges of murder, illegal possession of a gun and obstructing an investigation by hiding a body and denying any knowledge of it, even though subsequent DNA tests proved that the rotting contents of the bin were the remains of Ms Rungnapa.

 

He was arrested on February 28 last year after a tip-off that Ms Rungnapa’s body was stashed in his house. She had not been seen for the best part of three years.

 

Dokset denies killing her, saying that she died during an argument with him, when he pushed her and her head hit a wall.
