Thai netizens were shocked to see pictures of a Thai woman tied up by the hands and feet and strung up to a thicket of bamboo.
In addition straw was set alight just a matter of feet from her helpless body.
She was left like this for four hours as her boyfriend - who had tied her up - drank with his mates indifferent to her distress.
The pictures were posted on Facebook by a relative who called for the boyfriend's arrest.
Na Klang police in Nong Bua Lamphu in Thailand's north east were soon on the case and took a man into custody.
Pol Lt Col Sumonchai Jamnongnit said the couple had been together about a year and the man was abusive towards her.
She had threatened to leave him so he tied her up and lit the fire to threaten her.
He has been charged with illegal detainment and assault and is now in custody.
A reenactment is planned.
