NARATHIWAT, Thailand – The provincial police chief on Monday (March 3rd) presented two paramilitary defence volunteers charged in the murder of three young brothers in Bajoh District last month.

Volunteer Rangers Maming bin Mama and Sakeurah Jehseh, of the 46th Military Ranger Command, reportedly confessed to ambushing Jehmu Maman and his family outside their home on February 2nd, a Khabar correspondent at the press conference heard.

Maman's three sons, aged 6, 9 and 11, were killed in the attack, and their pregnant mother was injured.

Narathiwat Provincial Police Commander Pattanawut Angkanawin said the killings were motivated by a personal desire for revenge. According to his confession, Maming believed Jehmu had killed Maming's older brother and the brother's pregnant wife in August, the police chief said.

He said a third suspect in the case would likely be arrested "soon".
