Yolawadee said after her husband died of lung cancer three years ago, she alone was responsible for caring for her daughter.

She said she had become stressed and took two Diazepam pills a day to sleep. She said her daughter could not take care of herself and often left the apartment, so she had to locked her in when she went to work.

She said her daughter had attended Wat Mahabutr Primary School but stopped going because of her mental disorder and had been treated at the Rajankul Institute since 2006. – The Nation/Asia News Network
