    February 13, 2010

    A convicted serial killer dubbed Thailand's Jack the Ripper by the media was yesterday given another life sentence for one murder of five he has confessed to carring out four years ago.

    Aleady served a life sentence for killing a nightclub singer, Somkhid Phumphuang was handed a second life term for strangling masseuse, Sompong Phimphornphirom at a Buri Ram motel in June 2005, after having sex with her. He is set to stand trial for another three murders he confessed to committing in similar ways.

    The Criminal Court commuted this second life term from an original death sentence, citing his confession during the trial. Somkhid was also handed a oneyear prison term for stealing the victim's valuables, and ordered to pay Bt10,000 to her relatives.

    A Trang native, Somkhid, 41, is serving a life prison term for killing nightclub singer Warunee Phiphabutr in a Mukdahan hotel. He has also admitted to killing the three other masseuses.
