Dale Henry, an expatriate Canadian oil worker, settled down in front of the television last Sunday night at his home in Ranong, Thailand and sipped a glass of whisky given to him by his wife.

Thai authorities allege that Maneerat Henry, his wife of five years, then waited until he fell asleep before sending a text message to her lover, a Thai man, who entered the house along with a hired hit man through a door Ms. Henry had left unlocked.

Mr. Henry, 48, was shot to death at close range. His 27-year-old wife, her lover and the alleged hit man have been arrested in connection with his killing. Mr. Henry's younger brother, Richard, speaking from the Vancouver airport as he prepared to board a flight to Bangkok, said he believes Mr. Henry was killed for a $1-million life insurance policy.

“It just makes me sick,” his brother said. “He was just such a trusting guy and he was way too generous.”

Mr. Henry, who grew up in Victoria and worked as a paramedic in Alberta, had been working in Nigeria as regional head of safety for Noble Drilling. Every three months he would spend a month with his wife in Thailand, his brother said.

The couple met when Ms. Henry was working behind a bar on Koh Samui, and he courted her for eight months. Despite an age difference of more than 20 years, Mr. Henry thought he had found true love.

Once they were married he gave her everything, his brother said. They lived like royalty on his $10,000 a month salary. He bought a home for her parents and bought her an SUV. And while some Western men gave their wives an allowance, Mr. Henry gave Maneerat, or Nee as he called her, access to all his bank accounts, his brother said.

“He bought her everything,” he said. “That's why it's so unbelievable.”

But when Richard last visited Thailand in July, 2007, the three of them had discussed the $1-million life insurance policy provided by his company. Should Mr. Henry be killed, Nee was to give his brother 10 per cent of the settlement.

On a trip with his wife's family to northern Thailand at the end of last summer, Mr. Henry fell and broke his leg in eight places. Mr. Henry had been off work ever since.

His sister Mary-Jane Matheson said her brother was always talking about his “wonderful” wife.

“Everything was always “My darling Nee,” she said. “I never heard a bad word.”
