A Star Wars fanatic choked his Thai bride to death after she destroyed his prized collection of toys.
Rickie la Touche, 30, said his wife had had damaged his treasured Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker memorabilia which he had been collecting since he was a child.
During a subsequent row he suffocated Pornpilai Srisroy, 28, before running off to his mother's house to tell her what he had done.
The mother-of-one was later discovered dead on the couple's bed covered with a duvet and pillow in Leigh, Greater Manchester.
He was jailed for life with a minimum term of 12 years yesterday after a jury found him guilty of murder. He had admitted manslaughter.
La Touche - also known as Rickie Nehls - told police his wife had smashed up his Star Wars collection as part of a campaign to 'make his life hell.'
He claimed he was a henpecked husband who 'flipped' after she threatened to leave him to go back to her native Thailand.
He first met her in a bar while on holiday in Bangkok in Thailand in 2001, Preston Crown Court was told.

Don’t try to frighten us with your sorcerous ways, Lord Kearnyirish2. Your sad devotion to that ancient Jedi religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you enough power to save your Tauntaun collection!
Point taken. But, then again, we are dealing with the Eurozone, here.
He’s going to get his wamp rat bullseyed while in prison...
By the time he gets out, it’ll probably be bigger than 2 meters.
There’s a book called “Private Dancer” about a guy from England who becomes obsessed with a Thai bar girl.
It does a good job of showing where both the girl and the guy are coming from, and how things slowly went downhill.
Particularly it shows how the Thai girl’s attitude, which seems irrational and arbitrary to the guy, is quite rational given her situation and the dictates of Thai culture.
However, it takes place mostly in Thailand, and the ending is quite different.
That book is not quite believable, but this situation in England sounds ten times more insane.
It gets better than that.
Kittiporn is a common Thai name.
And next time you’re in a Thai restaurant, ask them how to say “pumpkin” in Thai. Better yet, if you’re into the group thing, ask how you say “pumpkin curry”.
But the name of Thailand’s capital is NOT Bangkok. It’s actually:
Krung thep mahanakhon bovorn ratanakosin mahintharayutthaya mahadilok pop noparatratchathani burirom udomratchanivetmahasathan amornpiman avatarnsathit sakkathattiyavisnukarmprasit

You. Are. There.
A young Jedi choked his wife.
She trashed the work of his young life.
When he realized what he'd done,
He ran off to tell his Mum.
I have to travel all over Asia for work and spent time in thailand.
THe one thing most commonly heard is DO NOT MARRY A BAR GIRL
Girls from the country, on the other hand... my soon to be wife is Thai and she is the sweetest angel I have ever known.
Methinks there's a clue to the "root cause" of this guy's problems.
Isn't that true anywhere?
But the child will be secretly raised by his uncle in the perp's hometown. Oh, and he has a twin sister that was adopted by a Senator.
I played with Star Wars action figures, but had outgrown them by the time those gay little “Ewoks” came about. Even Tauntauns had such a limited role they could only have been inserted into the movie to sell more action figures. Star Wars action figures jumped the shark when they sold a separate R2-D2 with a little sensor that raised out of his head...LAME.
“She has failed him for the last time.”
A person is dead who shouldnt be dead, but the result is this thread. And it’s a good one.
