Kick-boxer man faces US marine death Thailand extradition

Arrangements are being made to extradite a Birmingham man wanted over an ex-US marine's death in Thailand.

In 2010 Thai police named Lee Aldhouse as the main suspect in the murder of Dashawn Longfellow, 23, who was stabbed in Phuket on 14 August of that year.

Mr Aldhouse, who was 27 when he was arrested at Heathrow Airport in 2010, had been training as a Thai kick boxer.

His appeal against extradition to Thailand has been dismissed by the High Court, the Home Office said.

A Home Office spokesperson said: "Lee Aldhouse is wanted in Thailand, where he is accused of murder.

"Arrangements are being made to extradite him as soon as possible."

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