The father of the 16-year-old boy told the press that his son had brought the 14-year-old girl home 3 days before the fatal attack.

Mother threatened legal action under Thailand’s guardianship laws if the relationship was not halted
The father revealed that the mother of the girl had contacted him threatening to take legal action against both him and her son for depriving her of her rights as the guardian or parent of a minor.
This resulted in the father promising the woman that he would insist that his son did not see the girl again.
The 16-year-old, along with his girlfriend, was quite forthcoming under police questioning which is to continue with the assistance of psychologists assigned to the case.

She recruited him into her plot to murder her mother named by police only by her first name as Ms Jeerapha.
He said he followed his girlfriend to her home and he was instructed by her to hide in the kitchen. The girl also handed him a sharp 10 cm long knife.
He said after the nod from his girlfriend, he launched the attack by emerging from the kitchen and launching himself on the middle-aged woman who lay in bed.
He admitted to police that he had stabbed the unsuspecting woman numerous times in a frenzy of violence and blood spatter.
He confirmed that his determination to go through with the horrific act was driven by the belief that she stood between him and his beloved.
During the attack, the crazed lover also lashed out at the 23-year-old son of the murdered woman named as Mr Kitti who tried to come to the rescue of his mother but was forced to flee after being stabbed at least four times by the teenager.
Mr Kitti’s mother is understood to have been stabbed well over seven times in what was a ferocious onslaught.

The girl successfully kept the relationship a secret from her family up to this week.

Police responded to the incident at approximately 10 pm on Thursday night after it was phoned in by shocked residents and security guards at the building.
One resident, a neighbour of the family, 49-year-old Ms Phorn, told police that she suddenly heard a loud and violent disturbance in the flat on Thursday evening but could not see anything as the door was closed.
However, then, she observed the injured Mr Kitti run out covered in blood and crying for help.
The alarm was raised at that point.
Police, arriving at the scene, first accosted Mr Kitti on a path near the flat building.
He appeared to have stab wounds on his body, neck, shoulder and face. They arranged for first aid and emergency services to take him to hospital.
They then met the 16-year-old culprit whose clothing was covered in blood.
Police found the dead woman alone in the room with her daughter who orchestrated her bloody murder
In the flat, the body of the 53-year-old woman was found prostrate on the floor in front of the bathroom, face up. The deadly knife was lying nearby stained with blood.
Police found the 14-year-old girl in the same room as her dead mother whose brutal murder she had masterminded just minutes earlier when she put her crazed lover to his depraved work.
When interviewed by police, she claimed also to be suffering from a mental health condition that caused her, at times, to lose control of herself.
However, her older brother told officers that the family had not interfered with the girl’s relationship as they knew nothing about it until it came to light in recent days and his mother insisted that the girl was too young.
He also insisted that his teenage sister never had any history of mental illness up to this point.
