Mercedes driver jailed after killing 2 in Ayutthaya

A Court on Wednesday sentenced a man to two years and six months in jail for driving his Mercedes into another car, killing two post-graduate students in Ayutthaya province in March last year.

Janepob Veeraporn, 37, will have his driving license revoked for life.

The Court initially ruled to jail Janepob for five years but reduced the sentence to 2 years and six months as the defendant confessed.

Janepob's Mercedes slammed at high speed into the back of a Ford sedan carrying Thanthapat Horsaengchai, 34, and Kritsana Thaworn, 32, on Phahlyothin Road in Ayutthaya's Bang Pa-in district on March 13.

The Ford burst into flames and both post-graduate students were killed.

It is not known whether Janepob will be granted bail or not.
