BANGKOK — The wife of a Thai man who hanged their 11-month-old daughter on Facebook Live said Wednesday her husband is the only person to blame and she bears no anger toward the social media site or the users who shared the horrific video.

The video showed 20-year-old Wuttisan Wongtalay killing his child by hanging her at an abandoned hotel. The video was livestreamed Monday evening and made inaccessible by Facebook late Tuesday afternoon.

Police said the man later killed himself. The video was apparently available for viewing online for almost 24 hours until Facebook pulled it down.

“I am not angry at Facebook or blaming them on this,” Chiranut Trairat, 21, told The Associated Press. “I understand that people shared the video because they were outraged and saddened by what happened.”

She said her husband had been abusive in the past and spent two years in prison before they started dating.

Facebook has been seeking ways to block videos as quickly as possible after a series of gruesome images, including murder and sexual assault, were livestreamed or posted.

“This is an appalling incident and our hearts go out to the family of the victim. There is absolutely no place for content of this kind on Facebook and it has now been removed,” Facebook said in a statement on the Thai incident.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said last week that his company has “a lot of work” to do on the problem.

The murder in Phuket came less than two weeks after a man in Cleveland, Ohio, posted on Facebook a video of himself shooting a man to death.

In Thailand, the potential for problems with Facebook Live became an issue last May when local media used the platform to broadcast live video of a university lecturer who was locked in a six-hour standoff with police who were seeking him in the shooting deaths of two colleagues. After negotiations for his surrender failed, he fatally shot himself, a moment that was shown live.


Since last fall, Kevin Gates has been behind bars, for allegedly kicking a woman during one of his live performances. The Louisiana rapper, who was on the verge of being released last month, unexpectedly saw himself remaining locked up – after his 2013-gun case emerged.

The arrest warrant was issued, after Kevin failed to appear in court for the case, while behind bars in Florida. This morning, at the Cook County Sheriff’s Office in Illinois, Gates appeared in court and pled guilty to his original charge of felony gun possession.

To avoid an extended vacation, he simply accepted a 30-month deal, which he’ll be transferred to the Illinois Department of Correction. With a 2 ½ year bid in place, we’re hopeful Mr. Gates can put this unfortunate chapter behind and focus on coming home to family and a career.

SOUTHWEST PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Police say a teenager was accidentally shot in the face by a friend who was trying to wake him up for school.

It happened just after 7 a.m. Monday at the victim’s home in the 5300 block of Lindbergh Boulevard in Southwest Philadelphia.

According to investigators, a 16-year-old was trying wake up a 17-year-old.

When the 17-year-old didn’t wake up at first, police say the 16-year-old pointed a gun at him. He allegedly told investigators he did it as a joke.

The 17-year-old woke up, but the gun startled him. When he went to push it away, the gun went off, investigators say.

Medics rushed the victim to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in critical condition.

There was no word on any charges as the investigation continues.

Police are also working to determine where the gun came from.


FRANKFORD (WPVI) — The mayor of Philadelphia says Pennsylvania should legalize marijuana so police don’t have to expend resources on busts like the one in his city over the weekend.

Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney says Saturday’s raid at a warehouse hosting a pot-smoking party might have been “overkill.” Police arrested 22 people and seized more than 50 pounds of marijuana. About 175 people were allowed to leave without charges.

The mayor says he understands why police busted the party, citing the large amount of marijuana present and potentially dangerous conditions in the building.

But he says marijuana legalization is “the real solution.”

In 2014, the city made possession of small amounts of the drug punishable only by a citation and a fine, but marijuana sales weren’t decriminalized.
