30-year-old Rickie La-Touche, a big fan of Star Wars, murdered his own wife after she damaged his Star Wars toy collection.
La-Touche’s wife got upset with her husband and intentionally damaged his valuable toy collection. He told the judge that his 28-year-old wife Pornpilai Srisroy was on a campaign to make his life a living hell and the last straw for him was her breaking a Darth Vader action figure and a Luke Skywalker action figure.
Rickie arrived at his mother’s house one morning and his mother recalls that he seemed extremely angry. When she asked him what was wrong he told her that he murdered his wife.
According to the police report Pornpilai died of asphyxiation.
In the court Rickie said that his wife damaged his Star Wars toy collection that he had been collecting ever since he was a child and was worth thousands of dollars.
He said: “My wife is from Thailand and she keeps threatening to leave. We argued and she said she was going to make my life hell. She’s put me through it before. I couldn’t let that happen again. I then just remember getting up from on top of her. I think I’ve choked her.”

Andy Tattersall, from Greater Manchester Police, said: “Unfortunately, we may never know exactly what happened that morning, but I hope La-Touche’s sentence is of some small comfort to Pornpilai’s family and friends. He now has to live the rest of his life with the awful knowledge he is responsible for killing his wife.”
Rickie La-Touche was sentenced to a minimum of 12 years.
