Thai police have arrested two men who appear to be the prime suspects in the killing of a Lao-American couple who claimed to be descendants of ancient Lao kings.
Anouvong Setthathirath and his wife Oulaivanh were shot while visiting Thailand's Nong Khai province about four months ago. He claimed to be a Lao prince, descendant of Laos' ancient kings Anouvong and Setthathirath.
Pictures of the couple found on the persons of the suspects led Thai authorities to link them to the murder, and witnesses confirmed seeing the men at the time of the crime.
