BANGKOK (AP) — The son of two Spanish film stars has been arrested in Thailand on suspicion of killing and dismembering a Colombian surgeon on a tourist island. Police say Daniel Sancho Bronchalo, a chef, is being charged with premeditated murder, which carries a possible death penalty, and with concealment of a body. Body parts of a man later identified as Edwin Arrieta Arteaga were found last week in a landfill on Koh Phagnan, an island known for its monthly “full moon parties.” Police say Sancho has confessed to killing and dismembering the victim but denied it was premeditated.
