A Proportionate Response: Wife Smothered To Death After Smashing Husband’s ‘Star Wars’ Toys

Thursday, November 3 by
This witness was too scared to testify as to what he saw.  

In news that wouldn’t have happened if she had just kept her damn hands off his stuff like he asked her to, Rickie La Touche smothered his wife with a pillow after she destroyed the Star Wars figures he had been collecting since he was a child. After killing her, the Englishman man ran down the street sobbing to his mother’s house, which was nearby.

It’s interesting that a 30 year-old man who collects Star Wars toys lives close to his mom. That really could have gone either way.

It’s worth noting that La Touche’s wife, Pornpilai Srisroy, threatened to leave him to go back to her native Thailand, which may have factored into his decision to murder her. But honestly, it was probably more about the toys.

La Touche has been sentenced to life in prison, with a minimum of 12 years. Gotta love European sentencing guidelines.

Geez, lots of Star Wars related deaths this week…right, folks?
