A Thai police officer accused of killing a Calgary man is again facing murder charges.

Leo Del Pinto, 25, was shot twice while visiting northern Thailand in January 2008.

An off-duty Thai police officer, Sgt. Uthai Dechawiwat, was charged with his murder.

Those charges are still in court.

On Monday morning, Del Pinto’s father received a call from a government official and was told that Dechawiwat has now been arrested for allegedly killing his pregnant wife.

Ernie Del Pinto said he’s angry and frustrated.

“They wouldn’t put this man in jail when he killed my son, but now apparently he’s in jail because he killed his wife and his child,” Del Pinto told CBC News.
