You bent my Wookie... now die!

A 30-year-old British man was found guilty of murder for strangling his wife, whom he said had damaged his extensive collection of "Star Wars" toys.

Rickie La Touche, also known as Rickie Nehls, was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 12 years, The Telegraph reports.

La Touche confessed to killing Pornpilai Srisroy, 28, in April at their house in Leigh, Greater Manchester. He told Preston Crown Court that Srisroy tried to make his life miserable by, among other things, smashing a collection of "Star Wars" memorabilia he had built up since childhood.

He claimed that Srisroy had previously hit him with with a pool cue, and had threatened to kill him while he was asleep and "cut him up and eat him," according to The Daily Mail. She also threatened to leave him and return to her native Thailand, in La Touche's account.

"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," he told the court. "I then just remember getting up from on top of her. I think I've choked her,"

The two had met while La Touche was on vacation in Bangkok in 2001, he told the court. They married after his fourth visit in 2003, and Srisroy received a UK visa two years later.

After the verdict, police reacted soberly, the BBC reports.

"La Touche will now also have to live the rest of his life with the awful knowledge that he is responsible for killing his wife."

Srisroy's mother, meanwhile, paid tribute to her daughter. "Although small in stature she had a big heart and brought happiness to her friends and family," she said.

So what I'm getting out of this was that he viewed too much porn so his wife destroyed his star wars stuff and he said touché!

Someone needs to post pictures of the collection and the wife so we can determine guilt.

Sounds like the best grounds for justifiable homicide I've ever heard.

What happens in Bangkok should stay in Bangkok.

And... La Touche, Pornpilai, Bangkok? You can't make that stuff up.

Life with the possibility of parole in 12 years? If I ever kill someone, remind me to do it in England

We are not right around here.

If this post was in Tech Talk, we'd only need pics of the collection.

P.S. There's something coming out of her blouse. And it isn't a Wookie.

Re: You bent my Wookie... now die!

Don't piss off an Asian woman. I saw a Nikon forum where a Chinese woman smashed her boyfriends collection of lenses. That was probably 20,000 bucks destroyed.

For the record I am married to a Chinese woman and have several collections including Star Wars. I tread lightly.

Re: You bent my Wookie... now die!

Ehh, seeing as it looks like he has prequel memorabilia in his collection, I might have to side with the dead wife.
