Kick boxer wanted over Thai murder is arrested

A kick boxer from Birmingham wanted over the murder of a former US marine in Thailand, has been arrested at Heathrow Airport.

Thai police had named Lee Aldhouse, 27, as the main suspect in the murder of Dashawn Longfellow, 23, who was stabbed on 14 August on the island of Phuket.

Mr Aldhouse was also wanted by UK police for breaching bail terms.

Scotland Yard said a 27-year-old man was arrested at 1655 BST on 18 August for recall to prison.

It is understood that the Thai authorities have not yet issued an extradition warrant.

Mr Aldhouse had been training as a Thai kick boxer.

Mr Longfellow was attacked in his apartment, following an earlier bar brawl.
