Northamptonshire Police say police in Morocco have arrested a man wanted on suspicion of murdering a family of four. A spokesman said:
Detectives hunting for Anxiang Du have been informed by Moroccan law enforcement authorities that a man they strongly believe to be the suspect has been arrested.
The arrest happened on Saturday afternoon at a premises in Tangier and authorities believe that the visit by Northamptonshire detectives to Madrid earlier in the week played a significant part in the suspect's apprehension. Officers will now be progressing a formal application for extradition with the Home Office.
Northamptonshire Police say a man has been arrested in Morocco who is believed to be Anxiang Du, who is wanted in connection with the murders of four members of the Ding family who were found stabbed to death at their home in Wootton, Northamptonshire last year.
A man has been charged with the murder of a woman, police said tonight. Barach Bandavad, 38, is accused of killing 58-year-old Judith Ege on June 30 and will appear before Bristol Magistrates' Court tomorrow.
He faces a separate robbery charge, which he is alleged to have committed on the same day, Avon and Somerset Police said. Detectives had made a public appeal for Bandavad following an incident at an address in Highbury Road, Horfield, Bristol, at around midday on Saturday.
Bandavad, from Bristol, was later found in the Southmead area of the city and arrested. A post-mortem examination confirmed Judith Ege had been stabbed.
The victim of a fatal stabbing at a nightclub was a 17-year-old boy, it was revealed tonight. The teenager, named by police as Jordan Malutshi from London, was knifed in the heart at the Face Bar in Reading.
A murder inquiry has begun into the killing which has been described as an "isolated incident" by police. Detective Chief Inspector Kevin Mahon, of the force's major crime unit, said tonight:
This was an isolated incident in which a young man needlessly lost his life.
We have a team of detectives working on the case and are committed to carrying out a full and thorough investigation into the circumstances leading to this tragic incident.
We know there were a large number of people in the Face Bar at the time of the incident and I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, or who has information which could assist our ongoing inquiry, to call us.
Anyone with information is asked to call Thames Valley Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
