Mum admits killing autistic daughter, attempts suicide

A mother has admitted to murdering her 15-year-old autistic daughter at a rented apartment in Chatuchak district of Bangkok, saying she could no longer take care of her alone following the death of her husband.

Pol Lt Ukrit Suthiraphongsit, an investigator at Thung Song Hong police station, said he was alerted to attend the scene around 3am Tuesday.

In a rented room on the third floor of an apartment building on Ngam Wong Wan Road, police found a 52-year-old woman seated and crying by the body of her dead daughter, who was on the bed, Pol Lt Ukrit said. He identified her only by her first name, Yolwadi.
