A 14-year-old fatally stabbed his friend Thursday in Thailand over the victim's refusal to do chores, a police official said.

The deceased had been staying with his friend and his friend's mother in Pathum Thani near Bangkok for the past two weeks because he was having problems at home.

The two were quarrelling over chores when the situation boiled over and one teen was fatally stabbed.

"The 14-year old has been charged and the case has been sent to the Juvenile and Family Court," said Police Lieutenant Nat Kudnui told dpa.
