Nurse arrested for murder six years after ‘killing sugar daddy and claiming he died from Viagra heart attack during sex’

A nurse has been arrested six years after allegedly murdering her sugar daddy lover and claiming he died from a Viagra heart attack during sex.

Kanokrat Suwanfu, 33, was with her married lover in a hotel before he was found dead, dumped in wasteland in 2015.

The nurse had been in hiding ever since until police arrested her during her shift at a hospital in Bangkok, Thailand, this month on January 10.

She had been working under a new name after allegedly faking her own death by falsifying her own death certificate to avoid a court summons and flee cops.

However, a cold case review traced Kanokrat to a hospital in the Thai capital where she was living a respectable life as a nurse.

Police Major General Suwat Sangnoom said: ‘There was a breakthrough in the case and we acted quickly to arrest the suspect. Prosecutors did not believe her in 2015 and she was sent to court but escaped.’

The nurse was accused of killing lawyer, Sommas Pongpoka, 61, in Chachoengsao province six years ago. The man had a family but he was also allegedly having an affair with Kanokrat, giving her expensive gifts and taking her on trips, in return for sex.

Kanokrat denied the charges and claimed that the old man accidentally died after taking too much Viagra during ‘strong sex’ at a love mote hotel where they would meet in secret as he was married.

Sommas allegedly took the sex-enhancing drug before having severe chest pains as they romped and then keeling over.

The nurse reportedly asked the hotel staff to help her take the body to the car so she could take him to the hospital.

But instead of going to the hospital, she drove away in the man’s Toyota Camry car to a remote area and allegedly dumped the body on the grassy part of the highway.

Kanokrat was arrested in 2015 following the discovery of the body but was allowed to post bail so she was able to escape.

A court hearing was set on 2017 but she failed to appear and allegedly forged documents saying she was already dead.

She is said to have changed her name from Sirikan to Kanokrat before working as a nurse at the hospital where he was caught by the police this week following an arrest warrant.

Police are now investigating the case while Kanokrat will be held in police custody on charges of failing to appear at court, murder, theft and hiding, moving or destroying a corpse in order to hide the cause of death.

She also faces charges of forging official documents.

Police Major General Suwat added: ‘The suspect claimed she had no intention of fleeing court and said that the forged death certificate was done by another person.

‘We don’t believe that and have submitted the case for prosecutors to gather evidence. She will be held in custody as there is a high risk she will escape again. The case will proceed through the correct legal steps and she will face all of the original charges and more for not appearing at court.’
