Arthur Sampson-Kent – After he was arrested in Ghana

The man who was held in Ghana on suspicion for the murder of ex-EastEnders actress Sian Blake and her two children has been taken into custody by the Metropolitan police soon after he arrived at Heathrow from Ghana Friday morning February 12, 2016, British newspapers have reported, citing the police.

The reports say Arthur Simpson-Kent, 48 has been taken to a west London police station.

He fled the UK days after Blake and her sons went missing, and was arrested in Cape Coast in Ghana among tourists January 9, 2016.

The bodies of Sian Blake, 43, and her two sons eight-year-old Zachary and four-year-old Amon, were found in the garden of their London home days after they went missing.

When Simpson-Kent was put before court in Ghana, he opted not to contest his extradition, telling the court he was willing to return to the UK to face trial.
