A Birmingham kickboxer wanted in Thailand on suspicion of the fatal stabbing of a former US soldier has been arrested on an extradition warrant.
Lee Aldhouse has been remanded in custody at City of Westminster Magistrates and will reappear via video link for a review hearing next week.
The Thai authorities have lodged the extradition request over the death of Dashawn Longfellow on the tropical island of Phuket in the early hours of August 14.
The 27-year-old was named as the prime suspect by Thai police after the body of 23 year-old Mr Longfellow was found at the Yanui Paradise Resort, in southern Phuket.
The decorated soldier was on holiday after being injured while serving in Afghanistan with the US Marines.
According to reports, Aldhouse left Thailand via Cambodia and was thought to have returned to the UK via Singapore.
