A 29 year old Spanish man has been officially charged with murdering and dismembering his Colombian partner on Koh Pha Ngan in August of this year. Daniel Bronchalo, who is a famous chef in his home country, was charged at Koh Samui Provincial Court yesterday, October 25.

Public prosecutors assert that Bronchalo murdered Edwin Arteaga, a 44 year old plastic surgeon from Colombia, and then dismembered his body in an attempt to conceal the crime. It’s understood both men had been in a relationship. The court accepted the charges and has summoned Bronchalo to a statement hearing today.

The murder was uncovered when body parts were found at a landfill site on the island on August 3. The next day, Bronchalo was arrested, subsequently admitting to the murder.

Brochalo is understood to be the son of famous Spanish actors Rodolfo Sancho Aguirre and Silvia Bronchalo. According to some Spanish media reports, his mother is currently in Thailand where she has been visiting her son in prison every day.
