A man convicted of killing a radio DJ has been arrested after absconding from an open prison in Derbyshire.

Brett Frewin was one of four teenagers jailed in 2004 for the manslaughter of Heart FM presenter Tushar Makwana, from Castle Bromwich, near Birmingham.

Mr Makwana suffered head injuries while trying to stop their getaway car.

Frewin, 24, formerly of Castle Vale, Birmingham, absconded from HMP Sudbury but was returned on Thursday.

He was sentenced to 10 years in custody at Leicester Crown Court after being found guilty of the killing.

His trial heard that he and his four accomplices tried to kick in the front door of Mr Makwana's home to steal the keys to his BMW.

After being confronted, they fled in a Citroen car.

Mr Makwana, an award-winning DJ, tried to stop them by opening the door of the car as it sped off but he fell to the ground suffering serious head injuries.
