Thai Woman Accused of Murdering Son to Appear in UK Court Next Month

A Thai woman accused of murdering her seven-year-old son is set to appear in court next month.

Papaipit Linse, 43, of Upper Market Street, Haverfordwest, is charged with the murder of her son, Louis Linse, at their home on 10 January.

Following her initial appearance at Swansea Crown Court in February, it was determined that Linse was not fit to enter a plea due to her mental health conditions.

During the February hearing, defence counsel Dyfed Thomas referenced a psychiatric report, indicating that Linse might regain fitness to plead after a period of reassessment. Consequently, she was transferred to a secure mental health unit for ongoing care and observation.

On 26 June, the case was brought back to court, where it was agreed that Linse would return for another hearing on 17 July. The court proceedings have been adjourned multiple times to accommodate the necessary psychiatric evaluations.

The tragic incident drew significant attention when Dyfed-Powys Police and paramedics were called to Linse’s residence shortly before 10.45am on 10 January. Upon arrival, emergency services found the young boy deceased, prompting an immediate investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death.

An inquest into Louis Linse’s death was opened by HM Coroner for Pembrokeshire, Paul Bennett, on 19 January but was subsequently adjourned pending the outcome of the police investigation.

The community of Haverfordwest remains in shock as they await further developments in this heartbreaking case. Linse’s upcoming court date will likely provide more clarity on her mental state and the legal proceedings moving forward.
