In brief: Death sentence

December 23, 2000

One Hmong woman was sentenced to death and another to life imprisonment for possessing 400,000 methamphetamine pills with intent to sell.

Yua sae Lee, 35, and Jong sae Saeng, 39, both of Khao Kho district, Phetchabun, were arrested on Nov 10 at a checkpoint near Ban Khek Noi.

The Criminal Court originally handed down the death sentence on both women. Yua's death sentence was commuted because she confessed.
