• Star Wars fanatic jailed for killing wife who smashed toy collection

      La-Touche said Thai-born Pornpilai Srisroy had smashed up his prized collection of Star Wars toys, which he had built up since he was a child. La-Touche – also known as Rickie Nehls – suffocated his wife, 28, then ran sobbing to his mother, who lived in a nearby street.


      The 30-year-old told police his wife had wanted to ‘make his life hell’ and once threatened to kill him when he was asleep then ‘cut him up and eat him’. He claimed he was a henpecked husband who flipped after Srisroy threatened to leave the marital home in Greater Manchester and go back to Thailand.


      Srisroy died in April when the couple – who had a child together – rowed violently at 6.30am. A relative later went to the house and discovered her body in the bedroom.


      Senior investigating officer Andy Tattersall, from Greater Manchester Police, said: ‘This is a tragic case. La-Touche will have to live the rest of his life with the awful knowledge that he is responsible for killing his wife.’


      La-Touche denied murder but pleaded guilty to manslaughter. He was ordered to serve a minimum of 12 years.

        Nice, Tycho.... achingly sensitive. "Mummy, I've 'ad to choke me bargirl after she bludgeoned me mint-on-card Yak Face." A nerder most horrid. But kinda understandable, in a way.

      Well, I've pointed at the screen while guy says, "What's that mean?" for the last time.

      So his name isn't really Han Solo...

      I can see the tagline now... twice the smuggler, twice the scoundrel, twice the pilot... meet... Han Duo!

      His name is Hans Olo. They spelled it wrong on his driver's license and he didn't think it was worth fussing over.

      Maybe he's related to Boba Fett! I'm sure someone would think that was neat..

      Or maybe we'll find out that Woody Harrelson was the first

      How did you spend your Saturday?

      The week before, I was in an X-Wing Miniatures tournament at a local game store. There were ten competitors. I won one of my four games, but the win

      He's an Organa, so his name should be Han Organa Solo Organa; and he's Leia's step-brother husband. It's meant to explain Kylo's messed-up attitude?

      I didn't see a thread for the new Han Solo movie, and I couldn't find a post about this.

      I liked the "Zero Hour" two part season finale. I'm glad that the show didn't get rid of Thrawn, who is such a strong character, the way that

      Timothy Zahn must've LOVED these two: Interdictor Cruisers, Thrawn in ground battle gear, his plans would've been flawless were it not for the (blatantly-obvious)
