Burmese defendants plead not guilty to Koh Tao murders

Two Burmese Men have pleaded not guilty to charges of rape and double murder in Thailand.

The prosecution demanded the death penalty should Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Htun (also known as Wai Phyo), be found guilty of the killing of David Miller and Hannah Witheridge in September.

Capital punishment had previously been taken off the table, as the two twenty-one year old Arakanese migrants had confessed to the crime— a confession they later recanted.
