Briton to be extradited over killing
BANGKOK (AFP): A Briton wanted in his home country for murder, and who was found hiding out in Patong, is expected to be extradited from Thailand within the week, police said yesterday. Peter Mann, 45, was arrested in July in connection with the murder of David Maher, 37, whose dumped body was discovered by a milkman in Devon, southwestern England, in November last year. He has been held in jail in Bangkok. Police from Britain are due to fly to Thailand the day after tomorrow to complete their inquiries, and expect to return home next Tuesday with Mann, who will be charged with murdering Maher, with whom he used to share an apartment. Police said Maher, who died of a fractured skull, had been involved in a fight at his apartment at the time of his death on November 17 last year. His body was dumped outside a dairy firm’s premises. In May, magistrates in Devon issued a warrant for Mann’s arrest.
