Court to hear extradition case of UK murder suspect today

The Kaneshie Magistrate Court will later Tuesday hear the extradition case involving British citizen Arthur Simpson-Kent, who is accused of murdering his girlfriend in the UK.

Kent was arrested in the Western Region over the weekend after running to Ghana last month.

The court was to hear the case on Monday but had to adjourn because the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) officials who are holding him did not turn up in court with the suspect.

A state attorney who was in court requested the adjournment to Tuesday, which the court granted.

Simpson-Kent 43, is being investigated for the murder of his girlfriend, Sian Blake, and two children.
