The Criminal Court on Friday sentenced a Spanish man to death for the murder of a fellow Spaniard whose body parts were found in the Chao Phraya River in January last year.

Artur Segarra Princep, 38, was given the death sentence for the premediated murder of David Bernat, 41, consultant to a foreign firm. The court also ordered him to return more than 730,000 baht he stole from his compatriot to his victim’s family.

The defendant was on Friday taken from the Bangkok Remand Prison, where has been detained for the 14 months since his arrest, to hear the judgement.
